By the end of 2004, China had 2,236 colleges and universities, with over 20 million students enrolled.[1] More than 6 million Chinese students graduated from university in 2008.[2] The "Project 211" for creating 100 universities began in the mid-1990s,has merged more than 700 institutions of higher learning into about 300 universities. The University of International Business and Economics in Beijing was the first of such example.

Corresponding with the merging of many public universities, has been the rapid expansion of the private sector since 1999. As of 2006, private universities accounted for around 6 percent of student enrolments, or about 1.3 million of the 20 million students enrolled in formal higher education.[3]
