taking place in the mathematics departments of universities in the
Philippines due to globalization. The study employed a case-type qualitative
research design. Four top universities of the Philippines were included in
the study. These universities are considered as Centers of Excellence (COE)
in Mathematics by the Philippines’ Commission on Higher Education
(CHED). The study considers the area of instructional design, faculty and
