The process of internationalization and globalization grants the curriculum with a global outlook and provokes a great feasibility for international student mobility and chance of employability globally; however, it poses threats, like brain drain, as Georgia is still a developing country and many skilled young people seek for better jobs and salaries abroad. The paper stresses the level of internationalization in Georgian HEIs after the implementation of reforms and tools of the Bologna process.
