Abstract

The quest for “world-class universities” and the global university ranking have become increasingly prominent agendas affecting the way universities are governed. In order to better position universities in the globalized world, many national governments, policy makers, analysts of higher education across different parts of the globe have devoted far more attention, resources and energies to search for new governance and strategies in promoting university research with the intention to rank higher in the global university league tables (Mok and Wei, 2008).
