Abstract
This As one of the largest developing countries in the world with its rapid growth rate in the economy, China has achieved remarkable increase in its private higher education sector. Thanks to the policies of marketization and diversification in higher education, private higher education has played a considerably important role in China which is comparable to the role public higher education has. Following a review of the literature, analysis and discussion will be carried out to demonstrate the driving forces of privatization of higher education in China under the particular social and economic context of marketization. After the analysis and discussion of the driving forces, some of the arising crucial issues during the process of the rapid expansion of China's private higher education will be illustrated. Finally, recommendations will be made on how to keep the development of private higher education on a healthy and sustainable track for the long-term.
