Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on the notion ‘organisational professionalism’ as it is constructed by contemporary discourses of higher education management. It investigates how professionalism is established and operationalised in a specific local site, which is a university in Vietnam, and studies the orientation of its institutional policies and management practices towards faculty development. In this way, by looking at both ‘regulations and instrumentalities’ (Freidson, 2001, p.136), the study provides an empirical analysis that showcases the different political forces involving in the making of professionalism.
