  • Abstract

    The objectives of this study are to determine the significant relationship between transformational leadership and performance of academic leaders, and the significant relationship between corporate entrepreneurship and performance of academic leaders. This study is also aimed to determine the mediating effect of corporate entrepreneurship on the relationship between transformational leadership and performance. A quantitative research design based on the questionnaire survey was used to collect the data. A total of 246 usable responses were received from academic leaders of twenty public universities throughout the country. The findings reveal significant and positive relationships between transformational leadership and performance, and corporate entrepreneurship and performance. In addition, corporate entrepreneurship was found to partially mediate the transformational leadership and performance relationship.
