The article draws attention to the fact that decisions concerning the institutional frameworks of higher education greatly influence the scope for action and the motivation of those participating in them. The authors present the characteristics of an institutional framework of higher education to ensure excellence in education and research, as defined by Andreu Mas-Colell, implementation of this in Hungary, and the various versions of the waste model of university decision-making. This dual synthesis leads to a relationship that can offer lessons for those concerned in the reform of higher education.
