Abstract: The Asia-Pacific Region stands at the forefront of international branch campuses (IBCs). American and European universities export higher education globally, especially to Asia. This study aims to compare background, governmental policy, strategies and developmental models of the IBCs in four Asian countries, namely Malaysia, Singapore, China and South Korea via case study and comparative approach. Data were collected by means of interviews, focus group, and document analysis. Results of the study indicate that polices and developmental models vary in the four nations due to different contexts and cultures. All of the four countries deregulated educational laws in order to attract foreign universities to set up IBCs. Different from the other three nations, Korea provided lands and the first-five-year funding for IBCs establishment. Curricula and programs in IBCs are adjusted to the local needs in Malaysia and China, while those in Singapore and Korea are the same as at home country.
