New study programmes at universities: Strategic adaptation versus institutional adjustment

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic

    Abstract

    This chapter focuses on the ‘behaviour’ of higher education institutions with respect to curricular innovations. We are interested in exploring to what extent this behaviour can be typified as strategic adaptation to changes in the environment or as ‘reactive’ institutional adjustment. In fact, these two types of behaviour can be seen as two opposing views of organisational behaviour.
