Universities and Their Faculties as "Merchants of Light": Contemplation on Today's University
Waite, Duncan
Education and Society, v29 n2-3 p5-19 2011
The article examines universities and their role in the global economy. It is argued that university professors, instead of being thought of as 'merchants of light' are compelled to become increasingly more entrepreneurial in the current climate of marketisation, profit maximisation, and global competitiveness.
