Abstract


Educational planning and administration trends in higher institutions across the world continue to evolve due to the new discoveries, research outcomes, funding, technological and industrial advancement of the institutions. Administrators of higher education programmes in Nigeria are saddled with the task of developing appropriate administrative policies whose implementation must be in line with the sustainable development of the 21st century academia. This paper discussed the extent to which institutions of higher learning in a developing nation like Nigeria should plan and administer higher education programmes, as well as operate to achieve academic excellence, high standard, international ranking and effective administration. The authors equally provided suggestions for improvement to stakeholders that may require such transformation.
