In analyzing the transformation of Malaysian private higher education (PHE) from classical to a modern role play, it has brought forward the need to study on how, why and where the PHE has expanded especially on the globalization and its implications facing by the private providers. Curriculum changes, human resource diversification, new trends and market mechanisms (privatization, corporatization, liberalization, democratization, and internationalization), knowledge sharing and technology transfer as well as cultural issues are among the elements identified as important in discussing the impact of globalization on PHE in Malaysia. The exploration on the implication side has contributed a wide range of knowledge towards developing a conceptual map illustrating the changing role of the PHE in Malaysia and their future challenges. In general, it is hoped that this study would provide readers a clearer understanding on the potentials of the PHE sector in making Malaysia as a center of educational excellence.
