Talking of principals, the entrepreneurial expectations laid on them are hardly borne out in Scottish Business Insider's annual survey of the country's corporate elite. Only "maverick loner" Rae Angus of Aberdeen College rates an entry alongside an array of university leaders.
Angus is described as a "strong, dominant manager who's stamped his personal style on Scotlands super-college". His relations with Grampian Enterprise "are said to be cool", but the college has set up its own company, Aberdeen Skills and Enterprise Training, with an annual turnover of pound;2.3 million.
Rubbing salt in the wound of other principals, the magazine recalls the upset Angus caused by taking Aberdeen out of the Association of Scottish Colleges.
