Managerial Tenure under Private and Government Ownership: The Case of Higher Education.
Mixon, Franklin G., Jr.; McKenzie, Russell W.
Economics of Education Review, v18 n1 p51-58 Feb 1999
Provides statistical evidence suggesting that U.S. college and university managers (presidents) pursue goals consistent with economic theory in the context of firm ownership. Managers' tenure differs according to firms' organizational structure. Public institutions' nontransferable property rights reduce incentives to detect managerial inefficiencies and create incentives to make decisions increasing job security and tenure.
