Current Issues in Ethiopian Private Higher Education Institutions: Opportunities and Challenges
FSS Research Report: No. 9 Since the liberalisation of the higher education sector in Ethiopia at the beginning of 2000s, several dozens of Private Higher Educational Institutions (PHEI) have been established. Today, the private sector plays an important role in the provision of higher education in Ethiopia. In this publication, Wossenu Yimam and Mulu Nega who have a long experience in educational research explored the role that PHEIs play in addressing the need for increased access to higher education; the impacts of government regulatory regimes on PHEIs and status of public-private partnership in higher education. The findings of the research report could serve as inputs to policy debates on the sector. As the researchers used first-hand information that they collected from 16 PHEI found in different parts of the country, the findings of the research report are well grounded. This research report will be of interest to scholars and students of education, education policy makers and practitioners.
