    This article discusses the ways that the trends of corporatization and commercialization have changed managerial roles in universities. The authors argue that we have gone too far with these trends and plea for redesigned management roles. Performance measurement systems relying on student polls for teaching and on journal metrics for research support managerial interventions. However, managers also need to acknowledge the autonomy and different capabilities of their staff members in order to get the best results. This article
    contributes to the debate about desirable management roles in universities in the light of a meaningful academic knowledge production.
