About this book

The Entrepreneurial Research University in Latin America examines the fascinating clashes between the Latin American tradition and the influence of new globalized forms of organization represented by entrepreneurial university models. With particular emphasis on the governance of university research, the author aims to answer key questions: Why and how do local traditions or global forces shape structural and cultural organizational change? Are these changes necessarily related to the improvement of the quality of teaching and research?

Pedro Pineda is Professor at the Universidad Externado de Colombia and Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Colombia.

Reviews

"This book provides a useful and enlightening analysis of the "clash of cultures" between Europe and North America and Latin America concerning the development of research universities. This discussion is especially relevant as Latin American universities seek to join the ranks of world-class universities." - Philip G. Altbach, Research Professor, Boston College, USA

"This is a great work of sociology of higher education, in the rich tradition of historical comparative education. While focused on the cases of Chile and Colombia, it nonetheless provides an outstanding overview of the recent evolution of higher education in Latin America, firmly situated in the context of the transformation of higher education worldwide. I know of no better source for understanding present day higher education in Latin America." - Andrés Bernasconi, Vice-Dean, School of Education, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Chile

"The book gives wonderful and rich accounts of how global and local models intersect in the field of Latin American higher education. Pineda's analysis will certainly be of great importance to the growing community of researchers working on the globalization of higher education and the adaptation of broader global models to the very specific national and local contexts, in which universities are embedded." - Georg Krücken, Director of the International Centre for Higher Education Research, Germany
