Major Issues Of Higher Education Management In Pakistan


Teaching and learning have been at the heart of education since the inception of mankind in this world. Higher education is meant to develop the ability of a student to think clearly, logically and honestly and to promote clear and critical thinking skills in student. This study contributes towards the understanding of the major constraints of management dynamics of higher education in Pakistan. The major constraints are financial, socio-cultural, technological, availability of skilled man power, quality and are of infrastructure, which were taken as independent variables to be tested against the dependent variable of management of higher education in Pakistan and student willingness and interest taken as moderating variable. Three different public universities namely Quaid-IAzim University, Fatima Jinnah Women University and Federal Urdu University of Science and Technology based in Islamabad were studied to collect in depth knowledge in the form of primary data and a sample of 500 students were studied out of a total population of 9000 students studying at higher levels (Masters, M. Phil and Ph.D). Enough of the already available relevant literature was studied and interpretation of the data gave us the findings that concrete measures must be formulated and implemented by Higher Education Commission of Pakistan to minimize the deteriorating impact of these constraints for the management of higher education in Pakistan and strategic plans must be introduced in higher education similar to that of corporate world.
