Multi-Product Total Cost Functions for Higher Education: The Case of Chinese Research Universities
Longlong, Hou; Fengliang, Li; Weifang, Min
Economics of Education Review, v28 n4 p505-511 Aug 2009
This paper empirically investigates the economies of scale and economies of scope for the Chinese research universities by employing the flexible fixed cost quadratic (FFCQ) function. The empirical results show that both economies of scale and economies of scope exist in the Chinese higher education system and support the common belief of universities as multi-product organizations. (Contains 6 tables.)
