AbstractThis thesis examines the factors dealing with the growth of private institutions of higher education in contemporary China. It considers the precipitating environmental conditions, which have allowed private education programs to be part of the national education system, which have propelled China into global prominence. The contributing elements of political reform, including educational reform, a booming market, and social transformation will be examined.
