Madu Onyewuchi M, Ojule Lawrence C

The study focused on improving university education through international collaboration for quality manpower development for the new world economy in South East, Nigeria. Three hypotheses guided the study. The descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. The population of the study comprised 11,107 Academic Staff (Federal = 6,039; State = 5,068) in the ten (10) public universities in South East, Nigeria. The sample size was 400 Academic Staff (Federal = 218; State = 182) representing 3.6% of the population drawn using proportionate stratified random sampling technique. An instrument titled “Improving University Education through International Collaboration for Quality Manpower Development Questionnaire (IUEICQMDQ)” structured by the researchers and validated by experts with reliability co-efficient of 0.81 determined with Cronbach Alpha was used for data collection. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while z-test statistics was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 alpha level. The study revealed among others that the ways universities could enable international collaboration for their improvement include: universities need to have clear policies centered on collaboration; put procedures in place to recognize qualifications, programmes and institutions across border; devise mechanisms for linguistic tutoring, licensure and registration and so on. It was recommended among others that universities and their representatives should proactively work with the Government to create an enabling environment and policies that ensure international collaboration.
