This chapter examines the extent to which the global powerful networks of international corporate elites have influenced and changed the landscape of higher education in Indonesia via the enactment of the government policies and programmes. Using illustrative empirical data from Indonesian universities, it is argued that the government policies and programmes on higher education reform in Indonesian universities have been very much influenced by the economic rationalism of neo-liberal agendas promoted by the global powerful networks of international corporate elites. Consequently, this economic-oriented reform has impacted on the reorientation of academic life into corporate-like manners.

Keywords:   international corporate elites, networks, economic rationalism, higher education, Indonesia
