When we talk about Higher Education (HE), we usually think of astandardisation and structure, which are encompassed in the term accreditation of programmes and ways of educating and being educated. Contemporary developments in HE are taking place in the wider context of globalisation. Globalisation is not only a term that addresses unity and homogeneity, but more precisely, different patterns of culture, cultural transmission, generational ambiguities, and multicultural expressions. Since management in HE is not solely management of understanding the process of teaching and learning, but mostly understanding the ability to learn from diversities, we focus on the question of culture, cultural transition and patterns of culture, and gaps in meaning.
