The primary goal of this paper is to identify the challenges encountered and opportunities offered by the private universities of Bangladesh. The significant challenges include unavailability of qualified senior full-time teachers, scarcity of fund for research and limited number of subjects/disciplines offered only to meet high market demand. These institutions of higher learning, however, provide opportunities of higher education to many who do not have access to public universities for various reasons. They have introduced new subjects/disciplines in order to keep pace with the competitive world. In addition, these private universities have earned reputation for having no academic session congestion, politics-free environment, and for helping save foreign currency by accommodating significant number of students who would otherwise study in foreign universities.
