Why The Sopranos may not be the best business model for universities

23 September 2013 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Jonathan Wolff says he learned about university finance from Tony Soprano – but the moral of the story is, we can learn from his mistakes

Everything I know about university finance I learned from watching The Sopranos and specifically by following the career of Tony Soprano's nephew, the ambitious Christopher Moltisanti. As Christopher rises through the ranks, with each promotion his joy is tempered by the realisation that financial pressures increase to previously unimagined levels. Respect has to be earned, and you never settle the bill.

In The Sopranos, the ground-level earners kick up to the leader of their crew, who, if I have this right, kicks up to the capo, who kicks up to the consigliere, from where the money finds its way to the boss. For a university, think departments, faculties, schools, finance directors and vice-chancellors. Our key earners are not racketeers, pimps and dealers, at least not as far as we know, »
