Comparison: University VS Corporation – (Besse, 1973)

Besse, R. M. (1973). A Comarison of the University with the Corporation. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill.

Clarity and agreement on organizational mission are usually considered a fundamental principle for establishing systems of accountability. It is commonly stated that “in a business corporation there is always one quantifiable measure of performance…the rate of earnings on the capital invested. Because dollar profits are both the objective of the activity and the measure of the performance, the operation of the company is keyed to accountability for the profit achieved” (Besse, 1973, p. 110).
