Designing the Entrepreneurial University: The Interpretation of a Global Idea

Rómulo Pinheiro () and Bjørn Stensaker

Public Organization Review, 2014, vol. 14, issue 4, 497-516

Abstract: Becoming an entrepreneurial university has been identified as the solution to the problems facing contemporary higher education systems. The idea of becoming an entrepreneurial university can be seen as the result of a more globalised higher education sector where the domestic and institution-specific characteristics of universities are downplayed in favour of a more uniform idea of what a university should do and how it should be organized. This article contributes to this scholarly discussion by analysing how efforts to transform universities into “more complete organisations” are understood and interpreted in terms of organisational structures.
