Organisation profile

The International Centre for Higher Education Management (ICHEM) is a major interdisciplinary research centre established in 1994 in the School of Management at the University of Bath, one of the highest ranked teaching and research institutions in the UK. Professor Rajani Naidoo is Director of ICHEM.

The overarching aim of the centre is to contribute theoretical advances and empirical knowledge to strengthen the innovative capacity of higher education in a global context. ICHEM brings together leading researchers from different disciplines across the University and a team of prestigious visiting professors to address the major issues confronting higher education. Our interdisciplinary research enhances current management, leadership and policy by shifting mind-sets beyond narrowly defined measures of success and turning the spotlight on international trailblazer initiatives which contribute to global wellbeing. We challenge taken for granted assumptions and develop alternative strategies for sustainable higher education systems contributing to global wellbeing through inclusive economic and social development.
