Handbook of Research on Transnational Higher Education Management

A book edited by

Dr. Siran Mukerji (IGNOU, India) and Dr. Purnendu Tripathi (IGNOU, India)


To be published by IGI Global:


Higher Education is no longer perceived as a stage of learning that occurs at universities, academies, colleges, seminaries, and institutes of technology. Rather, it is in the domain of support services provided to the learners in the form of academic programmes / educational programmes as ‘Educational Products’ in the institutions of higher learning, now considered as Professional Organizations. With greater emphasis on the integration of technology with education and trans-national collaboration amongst the Universities, Higher Education Management is a specialized area with ample research taking place in policy, governance, technological integration, marketing, and leadership and development in Higher Education.

The Handbook of Research in Transnational Higher Education Management is a sincere effort to collaborate with researchers with the main aim of sharing their research studies on the various conceptual, functional, and operational dimensions of Higher Education.
