The development of mass higher education and growing competition between
higher education institutions has given increasing visibility to the
issue of diversification. This article analyses the issue of programme
diversification, using a panel of 181 Portuguese higher education
institutions over the period 1995 to 2007, by comparing the behaviour of
public and private institutions. The results show that the legal status
of institutions is the major determinant of programme diversification,
as private institutions are far more specialized than their public
counterparts. The study also evaluates the role of other institutional
variables, such as the institution's size, age, location, institutional
mission and research intensity, to explain differences in the
diversification behaviour of higher education institutions. The results
provide important insights, as competition has been thought to improve
the performance of higher education institutions. © 2013 Taylor &
