This paper shares the practices of enhancing quality assurance in meeting emerging challenges in cross-border education management. The scope of the paper is focused on internal quality assurance pertaining to recent initiatives which aim at promoting a culture of quality in regulating cross-border knowledge transfer. Further, it examines the individual components required to create an enriching academic environment. Cross-border education programs are confronted primarily in the early stages of their development with the challenge of motivating top-notch students and renowned professors to partake in their programs. As such, there is a need to ensure standards in infrastructure, facilities, resources as well as support services. Additionally, provision of grants must be ascertained to fund students, researchers and activities that would enrich culture, research, and publication. This paper is written in the context of the strivings and the experiences of the Asia-Europe Institute of the University of Malaya to establish itself as an educational and research institution on par with the highest international standards. In order to do so, governance, structure, and administration of resources are required to design, monitor, and enhance programs. All this is done in order to build a reputation for quality.
