ABSTRACT. Our paper tackles the long-discussed processes of internationalization and globalization that is taking place in the sphere of higher education. We determine the levels and the attributes of internalization management of higher edu- cation on the global, national, and institutional level.

Our findings show that the main problems of Russian edu- cation are embedded into its integration into the global ed- ucation area. We formulate these findings in the structured and holistic form. In addition, we carry out the comprehen- sive evaluation of attractiveness of Russian education in the world according to the student mobility criteria. We employ the quantitative evaluation of universities’ internationaliza- tion level and its implementation using Russian top univer- sities included in the QS World University Ranking as an example. Moreover, we propose a method for evaluating the internationalization level of universities that is universal and can be applied not only to Russian universities but on the wider world-wide level.
