Product Overview

"There is no truer text to the topic than Managing Successful Universities... The second edition is a full revision in which globalisation, managing financial disjuncture and the enhancement of research performance all loom larger than before. Like its predecessor, this book will be used throughout the English speaking world and beyond." Professor Simon Marginson, Centre for the Study of Higher Education, University of Melbourne

"[This] is the manual par excellence for modern university leadership and management. In my role as a business school dean, it is by far the most useful single book I have ever read - and continue to read."

Professor Mark Taylor, Dean, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick

"When I began my career in university management, there was just one book on managing UK universities. Now there must be twenty or thirty but none is as comprehensive, authoritative, readable, and important as Shattock's Managing Successful Universities... Read this valuable book and learn much from it!"

David Palfreyman, Director of OxCHEPS and Bursar, New College, University of Oxford

Extensively updated to reflect political, financial and social developments since the first edition, it includes a new chapter on the management of teaching and research and gives in-depth coverage to managing retrenchment and the importance of human resource management. Drawing on the literature on management in the private sector as well as from higher education and on the unique experience of the author it emphasizes
