Learning to compete in European universities

McKelvey, M. and Holmén, M. (Eds.) Learning to Compete in European Universities - From Social Institution to Knowledge Business. Edward Elgar Publishers, UK, 2009. ISBN: 978 1 84844 001 2. Pages: 357.

This book attempts to challenge the reader by asking how and why European universities are changing and learning to compete. Anglo-Saxon universities in especially US, UK and Australia have been subject to, and responded to market-based competition in higher education for a long time. This book provides some steps towards understanding what is going on, towards analysing how individuals, groups and organisations are responding, and towards discussing the implications for society and universities.
