Retracted Article: Management and academic practices to prevent higher education corruption — a case review of an international branch campus in Uzbekistan

  • Eng Kee SiaEmail author


This paper discusses some of the academic integrity violation and education corruption issues that transnational faculty members and administrators may face in teaching and administering higher education provision in a foreign country. It attempts to provide and share some academic and management practices that are already implemented in an international branch campus in Uzbekistan. It is hoped that this sharing of practices will benefit and prepare both transnational faculty members and administrators with academic integrity to handle and manage students more efficiently and effectively, in order to minimize academic malpractices.
