ABSTRACT
Nowadays, the academic environment has gradually become global and competitive.Approaches to higher education curriculum design, assessment and evaluation or universitymanagement are changing rapidly to take note of new technologies and different perspectives on theeducational process. The University of Bucharest (UB) has undertaken a number of initiatives tosupport its values-driven approach to internationalization. In fact, one clear initiative is addressed inthe quality policy and quality objectives stated by the rector of UB, for this academic year, regardingthe realization of an internalization plan for each faculty. The main objective of our paper is toinvestigate how the framework generated by the quality assurance policies – embedding a qualityculture, implementing the regulations required by the Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance inHigher Education (ARACIS), institutional evaluations and quality audits, preparing for futureexternal evaluation and so on – can be correlated with the results obtained regarding internalizationaspects like the number of bilateral agreements or the number of foreign students. Our analysis isbased on the case of University of Bucharest where quality management and international relationsare united under the umbrella of a special vice-rector, strengthening the message of the present paper.
