Universities around the world tag their mission statements and initiatives with internationalization. Internationalization has become a major factor in every sector of the world, to ensure national security and to foster relationships between cultures so they may benefit from each other. This paper examines the many definitions of internationalization of higher education by comparing American universities with Australian universities. This paper examines how globalization is the key factor in enforcing internationalization of higher education programs in each country. In this paper, internationalization is comprised of three categories: international students, international faculty, and implementation of international programs. Two case studies were reviewed for their implementations of each U.S. and Australian university to determine how efficient and beneficial each university is in integrating internationalization.
