Private Higher Education: Global Trends and Indian Perspectives

Asha Gupta (Editor) K.B. Powar (Editor) Daniel C. Levy (Editor)
Synopsis The book explores emerging trends in private higher education at the international level in general and India in particular. Today with the emergence of knowledge-based and technology-driven economies, we find a sudden surge in the demand for highly skilled workforce. At the same time higher education is no longer seen as solely a state-funded socio-political priority but as a service that has attracted private initiative. The key questions are: Is private higher education desirable or has it become inevitable? Are there basic contradictions between public and private higher education or can public private partnerships co-exist? Based on private higher education experiences in a few select countries, a modest attempt has been made to delve deeper into some of these issues. This publication should be of interest to all those who are interested in issues relating to higher education in private sector.
