Globalization and internationalization have become important topics in higher education context due to the influence of various government and intra-government policies directed towards internationalizing higher education institutions (HEIs). Mobility is considered to be an important and often used tool in internationalization process. In recent years research on the influence of mobility programs such as Erasmus has moved the understanding of influence these policies and measures have on the practice of internationalization at HEIs. This thesis approaches this topic from the institutional perspective as the case study of two Serbian universities and their participation in Erasmus Mundus Action 2 (EM) program. Davies’ matrix of internationalization and Lewin’s three-step change theory will be used to measure the progress and changes taking place in internationalization practice or explain their absence. The result of the research is that both institutions remain fairly limited in their internationalization practice. University of Novi Sad has been able to achieve greater progress compared to University of Nis due to its better organizational climate and larger number of internationalization proponents.
