`This is a useful addition to the literature on finance and resource management in education.... Those whose work involves managing resources and finance in schools and colleges will find this a useful or even indispensable addition to their bookshelves, whether they are heads, principals or middle managers' - Mentoring and Tutoring

This book will provide readers with knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of managing finance, resources and stakeholders in schools and colleges. Written specifically for those studying for an academic qualification at Masters level in educational management, it provides self-study material and links to other key texts in the field.

The authors deal with the links between finance, resources and stakeholders in the context of school and college self-management. Examples are drawn from international settings as well as from the United Kingdom. Building on an examination of theoretical perspectives, practical considerations and applications are examined in a format which encourages the reader to explore the context of their own educational institution.

This book is a core text for the University of Leicester MBA in Educational Management.
