Abstract

In their bid to embark upon ostensible demarketing, higher education institutions have only ended up cannibalizing their flagship brands. This paper draws upon three illustrations to highlight the unintentional consequences of demarketing in higher education - revised editions of bestselling texts (with limited value-added); regional adaptations of texts; and inappropriate and sometimes unsustainable course launches.

Keywords: Unintended demarketing; polycentrism; higher education
