As a result, we developed a typology of institutional eras composed of a unique interplay of logics, actors, and governance systems. The German system of higher education, we argue, departed in the postwar period from an era of professional dominance (1945–1968), which was replaced by an era of federal involvement and democratization (1968–1998) until more recently managerialism and marketization became guiding principles for the new archetype of managed education (since 1998). With managed education a new type of university – the entrepreneurial university – emerged as a strategic response to the new institutional pressures.

1 The Global Context of Managed Education Globalization, shifting demographics, the changes in the production regime towards knowledge-intensive work, growing competition from the private higher-education sector, and ongoing fiscal constraints have been drivers for the world-wide institutional change in higher education (Høstaker and Vabø 2005; Sporn 2001; Subotzky 1999). Since Europe intends to become the “most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy” (European Council 2000), Germany’s higher education system was demanded to become more effective in producing useful knowledge and skilled labor to support the necessary innovations at company, regional, and national level (Warning 2007).
