For-Profit Higher Education: Godzilla or Chicken Little?
Winston, Gordon C.
Change, v31 n1 p12-19 Jan-Feb 1999
The economics of the growing sector of for-profit higher education institutions are examined, comparing the cost-price-subsidy structure of traditional institutions with these nontraditional institutions. Implications for the schools least able to withstand competition with for-profit institutions, generally private colleges and universities, and for high-subsidy schools such as state and elite universities, are discussed.
