Abstract

The paper discusses the process of shortening career path to leadership positions in academia that could serve as an example of mimetic isomorphism, where university tries to apply business-like quick result-oriented strategies. This strategy incentivizes young faculty to stay in universities and keep loyalty to academia. This process could also be one step towards bringing academia and business closer: breeding academic loyalty through business-type strategies of quick promotion.
