Abstract

International branch campuses are a small but relevant niche in the higher education environment, but it is surprising to see how much more research attention is focused on them than on other cross-border education projects, which are less visible but have a bigger impact and more uncertainty. In the current global environment, there is cause to worry about the future of IBCs.
