Abstract [en]

Swedish higher education should be managed in a manner that secures high quality in both education and in research. A fundamental condition for acquiring such goals lies in the resources allotted to the educational institutions. The main purpose of this report is to investigate the relative resource allocation between higher education in economics and business administration within four Nordic countries (Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland). Within all four Nordic countries, the resource allocation for higher education in economics and business administration will be juxtaposed with the resource allocation for higher education in technology.

The analysis shows that Sweden allocates 36 519 SEK per year and student within higher education for economics and business administration (compared with 82 531 SEK per year and student in higher education in technology and engineering). By setting the resource allocation of technical higher education against higher education in economics and business administration, it was found that the Swedish and Danish resource allocation systems showed high discrepancies, while the Norwegian and Finnish resource allocation systems showed low discrepancies. The Swedish resource allocation system proved to be one of low amount of allocation to higher education in economics and business administration and with high amounts of discrepancy between higher education in technology and economics and business administration.

In ascending order, Finland (12 % above), Denmark (32 % above) and Norway (77 % above) all allocate resources above the levels in Sweden when it comes to the higher education in economics and business administration. The main proposition in this paper, presented firstly in the report, includes tentative causalities between allocated resources and ‘contact time’ is advanced. By assuming that the current situation between resource allocation and contact time between teachers and students are optimal and that there exists a causality between the two, this report argues for an increase of 43 % in regards of the resources to students within higher education in economics and business administration: from the current 36 519 SEK to 52 170 SEK.
