The purpose of this paper is to analyze the evolution of the higher education system in the transition period of Romania, by using a contingency approach combined with change dynamics. This post communist transition, which actually happened in all the European former communist countries, represents a quite new and unique historical construct and it can be characterized by some generic aspects and many other specific developments for each country. Since universities represent core public institutions, their reform is strongly related to the governmental strategy and the evolution of all the political, social, economical, technological and ethical aspects during transition. Our analysis show a very slow transition process from the socialist management pattern to the present democratic management pattern, due to strong inertial forces and to a chronic governmental ignorance of the change dynamics.
