About this book

This book examines the contribution of entrepreneurs in diversifying and redefining the tertiary education landscape in Australia. The book explores how and why entrepreneurs have decided to enter a sector which, traditionally, has been predominated by public providers.
The book focuses on ways in which entrepreneurs have identified and engaged with opportunities in tertiary education, and created new educational organisations that are also, at the same time, new businesses. In so doing, they have disrupted the tertiary education sector, and their actions are having a major impact on the society, economy and educational profile of Australia, and around the world.
