Institutions of Knowledge and Internationalization of Education
Introduction
Globalization has been the most discussed topic in the developed as well as the
developing nations in the last few years.
Since the ancient times there has always been a
concept of vasudeb kutumbakam.
The need to have a global village in the modern times
is very clear to all of us who are here. My area of concern is one of the important
components of human resource development-education, which is largely affected by the
global village concept. Most of the developing countries now believe in investing in
education-both by public and private partnership as it will help in the economic
development and this is seen as one of the remarkable step towards the road to stable,
efficient economic system, with low rates of inflation, an impact of firm economic
discipline.
Globalization and education has been one of the most important issues of concern of
educationists, social scientists, economists and policy makers all over the world.
Education in the modern era is a necessary requirement for the better development of
human resource of a country which is integral part of its economic and social
development. Scholars have strongly given their viewpoints on the impact of
globalization and education.

Vasudeb kutumbakam is an ancient Indian concept where the whole world is one and its inhabitants are
one family. The space where human beings live is a creation of nature and all are children of that creator,
so all are members of one family.
