For-profit versus Nonprofit Private Higher Education

Keywords: Private Higher Education and Privatization, International, for-profit, private non-profit,


Distinctions between the three sectors of education -- public, private non-profit, and for-profit -- are often difficult to draw. While certain legally-mandated financial standards divide them, domestic and foreign for-profit institutions may look and behave like private non-profit institutions. Further complicating the equation are cross-border partnerships between these sectors.
