In the globalization, multinational enterprises require many international mobile laborers. This process constantly undermines national and ethnic consciousness, weakens national and civic education, and to some extent, leads to the hollowing out of national consciousness in developing countries. We should be vigilant against the West-centered internationalization of higher education. We should consider the fact that internationalization of higher education has a certain degree of permeability, especially when higher education institutions with academic power interfere, oppress, and assimilate those in weaker academic positions, which fosters academic colonialism. Although internationalization of higher education can promote academic exchanges, knowledge sharing, skill dissemination, and mutual understanding and integration of cultures between countries' higher education institutions, Western cultural hegemony and academic colonialism can also bring the danger of cultural decline or even extinction to developing countries, leaving them in a state of being "internationalized."
