In recent years there has been considerable discussion in the field of higher education about applying corporate management models to the operation of colleges and universities. While many administrators see corporatization as a reasonable solution there are just as many who feel that it will compromise the mission and the success of institutions of higher education.

By examining where higher education is at today and how business theories and methods interact with the needs of colleges and universities it is possible to highlight the positive and negative effects of corporatization.
