In the past decade, higher education in China’s mainland has experienced significant transformation. In order to cope with the growing challenges of the knowledge-based economy, the Chinese Government has adopted different reform measures to enhance research and promote innovation through the promotion of entrepreneurship education in university curriculum. The chapter focuses on three aspects of higher education reforms in China, critically examining (1) the promotion of entrepreneurship education through curriculum reform, (2) the enhancement of research capacity, and (3) the promotion of university–industry–enterprise cooperation. This chapter also discusses major challenges in implementing reform measures in transforming curriculum and research capacity in Chinese universities.
