Michaela Gläß

This book deals with the feasibility analysis of market-oriented Higher Education Institutions based on the data of international field survey. The topics under examinations require the use of qualitative methods: guideline-oriented open expert interviews in different countries for data collection, content analysis of the survey data, and proposal of a Balanced Scorecard application in the Higher Education Institution management. Based on the elements of New Public Management methodology the author elaborates a detailed development plan usable as a model to restructure a Higher Education Institution to cope with the challenges of the Future.
