The wave of merger has brought a dramatic change to the entire higher education sector that covers almost all levels of Chinese higher education institutions. Because the higher education in China plays a significant role in promoting the development of the domestic economy, the strategic measure of the large-scale merger will undoubtedly create a great influence on the entire society of China. Nevertheless, the researchers of China higher education have only paid little attention to this wave of the merger. Among the limited number of studies on the merger in the past, they mainly focused on the role that the government played in carrying out reforms at the level of laws and policies, while few focused on mergers at the level of institution, and this research aims at filling in the gap. This paper is for the purpose of discussing the achievements of the merger of China higher education and uncovering the key elements that restrict the progress and achievements of the merger activity. What is more important is that there is the necessity for us to make an analysis on the achievements that the merger activity has obtained from an objective perspective after it has experienced a development period of more than ten years.
