Managing Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Uganda is a game, in that despite the many theories and definition of management the reason as to how and why to achieving it, is still a controversy. In this article Thomas Berkeley’s lenses of management are employed to understand management of HEIs in Uganda whether is a rational professional game, an exploitative game, magic/religious game or a political game, (Thomas, 2003). Through a qualitative and explanatory design, four objectives are generated questioning the nature of management that prevails in these Institutions basing on Thomas Berkeley’s Analytical Frame work for management. Findings from this study indicate that the management of these institutions are a continuum and fluid that swing along the four approaches though all these institutions are built on a rational perspective as a foundation of other approaches.
