Neave, G.; And Others
This monograph presents four papers on the interaction of the market and higher education institutions in relation to the evolution of management and administrative patterns according to the requirements of new political and economic situations. In particular, the papers discuss the changes which a market ideology has brought to European higher education in the recent years. The first paper, "On Preparing for the Market: Higher Education in Western Europe. Changes in Systems' Management" by Guy Neave, looks at the ways in which systems management is changing Western European higher education and suggests that the expansion experienced during the years of mixed welfare state economies may not be sustainable after a conversion to market forces. The second paper, "Flexibility Production and Pattern Management: Two Basic Instruments of Strategic Planning of Higher Education Institutions" by F. A. van Vught considers features of strategic planning for higher education institutions based on the literature on planning and on the fundamental characteristics of higher education institutions. The third paper, "Higher Education, the State and Markets," by O. Kivinen and R. Rinne analyses several countries and their higher education systems in relation to markets and government including the United States, Western Europe, and Finland. The final paper, "The Management and Evaluation of the Entrepreneurial University: The Case of England" by R. Cowen looks at the process of alteration in the nature of the English university over the past 100 years. Each paper offers extensive references. (JB)
