The focus of this book is the marketing of HE at private universities in Syria. The aim is to investigate issues regarding students'' choices and preferences of private universities, with regards to marketing practices and strategies, and to examine their dynamic relationship. There is a strong need for more research combining these two areas. This book is of particular interest to researchers, policy makers and marketers in the area of higher education.
