A Case of Mimetic Isomorphism: A Short-Cut to Increasing Loyalty to Academia
Orkodashvili, Mariam
Online Submission
The paper discusses the process of shortening career path to leadership positions in academia that could serve as an example of mimetic isomorphism, where university tries to apply business-like quick result-oriented strategies. This strategy incentivizes young faculty to stay in universities and keep loyalty to academia. This process could also be one step towards bringing academia and business closer: breeding academic loyalty through business-type strategies of quick promotion.
