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

"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 "
