CCTV Ivy League?

Calling themselves the C9 alliance, 9 of China’s top universities recently have banded together to form the country’s version of the American Ivy League of 8 private institutes of higher education.

The American Ivy League universities are often viewed by the public as some of the most prestigious universities worldwide and are often ranked amongst the best universities in the United States and worldwide.

Membership of the Chinese Ivy league means it is easier now for the 9 institutions to distinguish themselves as the premier education venues in China.

The downside of this oligopoly development is that all other universities, no matter how good they might be in certain areas, are considered second-tier.

I wonder what if this Ivy League mumbo jumbo crap happens to our CCTV industry?
