Starting from possible theoretical approaches to privatizing education and the Hungarian legal framework, the article examines the options in principle for privatizing higher education institutions in Hungary. It ranges the main factors leading to the present situation, covers the possibilities raised so far in theory and in public life, and summarizes the feasibility of these, without presenting a specific scenario for future transformation. The analysis is centred mainly on matters of operation and management.
