In the higher education system of Vietnam, private organizations can build, own and operate private universities independently according to Decision 07/2009/QĐ-TTG of the Prime Minister of Vietnam in 2009. However, the private universities do not receive any subsidy from the government. The financial resources for private universities’ activities all derive from the tuition of students. Thus, these students must pay much more for tuition than the ones in public universities. This is one of the main causes of the increasing dropout rate in private universities. Many countries, such as Singapore, India, etc., can solve this problem by applying public – private partnership approaches. Meanwhile, the number of PPP project in Vietnam is limited compared to other countries in the region, and there has been little research on public – private partnership in the higher education system in Vietnam. Consequently, this study aims to review the literature of public – private partnership, and to consider the applicability of public – private partnership in the higher education system of Vietnam.
