The information to trace the professional profile of the researchers was collected in the Lattes Platform of the National Council of Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). The main results indicated that there is a strong collaboration between the authors in the development of the research and that the majority of researchers in the field are male. They also showed that universities are the institutions that most develop research on the subject and that there are indications of the existence of an elite of researchers on University Management. The results demonstrated that the studied researchers are mostly master and doctoral teachers, graduates or post-graduates in administration. The results indicate that the researchers are qualified and that they possess technical and / or scientific knowledge about the management of complex institutions, being able to contribute with the development of management models or management support tools.
