Resumé

Alongside student and staff mobility, universities these days get also actively involved in out-ward cross-border activities, such as licensing, entering joint ventures and establishing campuses. These cross-border activities are not without pitfalls however. A large number of universities de-internationalize from their international markets and such cases raise concerns about sustainability of university internationalization. Despite this evidence, the research in this area is lacking. In this paper we develop a theoretical understanding of how and why universities de-internationalize by focusing on withdrawals from franchise, joint venture, and branch campus operations. We use the concept of de-internationalization as a theoretical lens and conduct a review of available unobtrusive data to identify reasons and patterns of universities' withdrawals from international markets.
