"Managing Finance, Resources and Stakeholders in Education provides readers with knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of managing finance, resources and stakeholders in schools and colleges. Written specifically for those studying for an academic qualification at masters level in educational management, it provides self-study material and links to other key texts in the field."

Examples are drawn from international settings as well as from the United Kingdom. Building on an examination of theoretical perspectives, practical considerations and applications are examined in a format, which encourages the reader to explore the context of their own educational institution.
