Family-Run Universities in Japan

Sources of Inbuilt Resilience in the Face of Demographic Pressure, 1992-2030

Jeremy Breaden and Roger Goodman

  • Provides an in-depth historical, sociological, and ethnographic analysis of Japanese higher education from the standpoint of the private sector which, despite being numerically dominant in Japan, is often overlooked
  • Sheds light on family owned and managed higher education institutions which are a rapidly-growing phenomenon across many parts of the world
  • Situates family-run universities within the wider context of family business studies
