Working as an administrator in higher education often requires a graduate degree in order to qualify for entry-level positions.

Williams, Gareth – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2012
During the half century of the AUA's existence UK universities have experienced the fastest rate of growth and most far-reaching changes in their history.

Chapleo, Chris; Simms, Christopher – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2010
The issue of stakeholder identification and management is relatively well understood in the literature for private sector organisations, and its importance is increasing across all developed countries. However, whilst stakeholder theory has been advanced in commercial arenas, there is less research in the public and non-profit areas, particularly…

Globalisation is transforming the international marketplace and accelerating unprecedented socio-economic, cultural, social, political and educational change across the globe.

Baldwin, Jon F. – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2009
UK higher education has a proud tradition stretching back centuries, with St. Andrews almost 600 years old, and teaching having existed at Oxford for more than 900 years. There is no reason why universities established more recently should not demonstrate similar longevity. The management of stakeholders has always been central to the successful…

Bell, Gary; Warwick, Jon; Kennedy, Mike – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2009
The emergence of "managerialism" in the governance and direction of UK higher education (HE) institutions has been led by government demands for greater accountability in the quality and cost of universities. There is emerging anecdotal evidence indicating that the estimation performance of HE spreadsheets and regression models are poor.…

Kenward, Jack – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2008
This article is based on sessions at AUA Conferences in 2006 and 2007, which looked at some factors to take into account when considering the structure of the administration.

Ferrell, Gill – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2007
Like it or not, an institution's IT infrastructure is a matter with which institutional strategic planners must concern themselves. Information systems represent a significant investment, they perform mission-critical functions, and the appropriate use of information and learning technologies can have a critical part to play in delivering against…

Coen, Michael; Kelly, Ursula – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2007
In the 21st Century, IT Governance is, within the broader corporate governance context, critical for all organisations. Those without an IT governance strategy face significant risks; those with one perform measurably better (Calder 2005). There has been little field based research on IT governance, and few publications help managers understand…

Kettunen, Juha; Kantola, Mauri – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2007
Strategic planning and quality management have been developed independently of each other, but they meet in practice in many kinds of organisations. Strategic planning and quality assurance integrate different aspects of higher education institutions (HEIs) to ensure high-quality educational outcomes.

Whitchurch, Celia – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2007
Professional managers in UK universities represent an increasingly diverse grouping of staff. As boundaries blur between academic activity and the contributory functions required to deliver that activity in mass higher education systems and markets, their roles have become more fluid. Quasi-academic territories are developing in which professional…

Raban, Colin; Turner, Liz – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2006
Although the world is changing, quality management remains an area of relative calm. Many institutions continue to use elaborated versions of a model that is developed by the Council of Academic Awards and conceived at a time when higher education was not so exposed to market forces, when the policy and regulatory environment was relatively…
