Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the discussion concerning the process of corporatization of higher education in Hong Kong and Singapore, putting into context of a bigger picture of the two cities in trying to become a 'regional hub of higher education'. By examining and evaluating the recent education reforms in the two Asian city-states, the author delineates their implications for generating the corporatized environment for higher education in these two places, and arguing that the two places are using the similar process of incorporation but in a rather diverse way, upon which this can reflect their fundamental differences in terms of the basic mindsets and underlying philosophies of the two governments. The chapter concludes that corporatization, in association with quality assurance, market principles and practices, and managerial elements, has become an important theme for reforming the higher education sectors in both Hong Kong and Singapore.
