This chapter provides a brief, descriptive account of the introduction of corporate-type reforms to the university system by comparing the State Owned Enterprises Act 1986 (SOE) with recent legislation pertaining to universities. The corporate reforms discussed fall into four categories: competition; user charges; a private sector industrial relations framework; and a new system of accountability.
