Modern Universities are extremely complicated phenomena not on by structure but by the missions and aims they are targeting and challenges they are facing. We will try to look at the University as the object of management and of transformation at different levels - from the general strategy to the departments. We will explore the current structures of universities and the trends in higher education in the world. We will try to understand what is the contribution of the University to the Future of Education and Education of the Future.
