Abstract

Transnational higher education (TNHE) has been developing in China since the 1980s due to the positive disposition of the central government and the strong financial/political support from local authorities. This chapter analyses the local governments’ motivation and the benefits generated through establishing Sino-foreign cooperation universities. It begins with the brief introduction about TNHE in the context of Chinese economic and political context and then turns to the discussion of the strong support from the subnational governments. The following part explores a case of the benefits one Sino-foreign cooperation university on the surrounding community. The chapter concludes with policy implications and recommendations for future studies. Copyright © 2017 The Author(s).
