MetadataShow full item record
From the outset, it is necessary to understand what the purposes of higher education are. A clear understanding will shape the responses of institutions and individuals to the need for strategic planning and management. The compiled papers asses that most universities and institutions of higher education now operate in a highly competitive environment. In this regard, there is strong competition for student recruitment, for research funds, and for the best staff. Such competition is sometimes encouraged by governments and funding bodies. In this context, the series presented in this book aim to point out higher education policies that are based on European standards and international best practice in the areas of strategic management, financial management, relations with civil society, and quality assurance.
