On 13 October Sintayehu Alemu successfully defended his thesis titled Conceptualizing the Internationalization of Higher Education and the Academic Profession with a Comparative Analysis of Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Africa at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia.

In his thesis, Sintayehu has written about the dilemma that internationalization of universities and higher education institutions pose for academic life in small countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa. The thesis investigates how the policy of internationalization of higher education helps the transformation of universities globally, regionally, and institutionally. Moreover, Sintayehu's PhD project has analysed the regional similarities and differences or diversities in the process of higher education internationalization.
