The literature identified fee‐paying education as one of the fastest growth industries in the world – it is a global industry from which many industrialised countries, such as Australia, are well positioned to benefit. At this stage, little conclusive evidence exists that identifies how such enterprises should operate, although many universities around the globe have already made a considerable investment in fee‐paying graduate education and rely heavily on the income it generates. The literature suggests that few, if any, excel in the best practices associated with this type of education. The research also identified a set of best practices that apply specifically to fee‐paying graduate education that can be grouped in a number of categories.
