Editorial Reviews


Fisher and Koch are to be commended for efforts to examine the issue of entrepreneurial presidents. Their national perspective warrants a close examination, especially if done in conjunction with myriad other presidential studies that help deepen one's understanding of analyses provided here. (Journal of Higher Education)

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Fisher's name is not new at all for those who follow and pursue research on higher education administration and the aspects of the presidency. This book is a sort of update of his previous book "Effective College President" but in addition, Dr. Fisher and Dr. Koch enriched it with statistical data pertaining to the presidents and their performance. The book is a Bible for those who are in the office of president of any college or university. I strongly advise this book to everyone who is engaged in the field or makes a research on the presidency of higher education.
