Running Universities as Enterprises: University Governance Changes in Hong Kong
Chan, David; Lo, William
Asia Pacific Journal of Education, v27 n3 p305-322 Nov 2007
University entrepreneurialism has been adopted as a way of promoting quality education in Hong Kong. In light of the role of the state in Hong Kong's changing higher education governance, this article critically reviews the rationale for privatising and corporatising the university sector. With a focus on the current trends of privatisation and corporatisation, the article discusses and examines how the entrepreneurial culture has changed university governance in Hong Kong and whether these changes have boosted Hong Kong's academic diversity, particularly when the Hong Kong government has set as its vision the promotion of the city as a regional hub of higher education. (Contains 1 table and 3 notes.)
