"The pros and cons of applying business methods to university operations, tempered by economic realities, is at the heart of these books. In a series of 35 essays, academic and corporate experts discuss nearly all aspects of higher education, from leadership strategies, labor issues, and crisis management to rankings, marketing, and sports. . . This set represents a thoughtful and highly useful starting point." - University Business
"Likely to raise the blood pressure on many readers, this is a thoughtful collection on a timely topic that will be of interest to policy makers and administrators." - Reference & Research Book News
"An installment in the publisher's 'Praeger Perspectives' series, this collection of writings by academic, business, and nonprofit professionals-edited by professors of ethics and educational leadership-seeks and succeeds at assisting in answering the question of whether higher education and public interest is helped or harmed by the application of business methods to academic functions at the higher education level. . . . A valuable set for colleges considering taking a more businesslike approach to fulfilling their missions. Students of business or educational leadership would also benefit from the knowledge compiled here." - Library Journal
