Abstract The need to compete is not limited to business organizations but is also one of the normal practices of publicly funded academic institutions. Reforming higher education and the adoption of neoliberal policies have transformed publicly funded colleges and universities and have forced them towards the market. The paper reviews and critiques: (1) Historical context of competition in higher education and the role of government in enhancing competition. (2) Competition and the use of competitive strategies in higher education.
