Beschreibung

In recent years we have observed significant growth in the private
sector in many higher education systems around the globe. This growth of
private higher education is associated with high political
expectations, notably concerning greater choice of programs and greater
responsiveness of institutions to students' and labor markets' demands.
Looking at the experience of several European and Latin American
countries, this study analyzes the patterns of program diversification
of public and private higher education and discusses the impact of the
private sector for the diversification of higher education's supply. The
results show a contrasting picture between political beliefs about
privatization in higher education and its actual results, suggesting
that private institutions tend to be far more specialized than their
public counterparts. © 2012, Journal of Economic Issues / Association
