SIEGFRIED Department of Economics, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN 37235-1819, USA. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org At the inaugural International Industrial Organization Conference of the Industrial Organization Society, I organized a session on the ‘‘Competitive Forces in Higher Education’’. Four papers were presented, by the authors included in this symposium. Three of these symposium papers, by John Kwoka and Christopher Snyder, Malcolm Getz and myself, and Susanne Warning are revised versions of the conference presentations. The fourth paper included here, by Gordon Winston, is an alternative paper that we deemed a better ﬁt into this published symposium. The four papers that follow consider product diﬀerentiation among colleges and universities, entry and exit into the US higher education market, the sensitivity of capital investment decisions to the relative price of capital goods, and the impor- tance of strategic choices for the relative eﬃciency of German universities. The conference was held at Northeastern University on April 4 and 5, 2003. Lawrence J. White (New York University) presided. Joseph Quinn (Boston College), Richard Caves (Harvard University), James Meehan (Colby College), and
