Leadership and Managerial Effectiveness in Higher Education

Izlem Gozukara ()

International Journal of Academic Research in Accounting, Finance and Management Sciences, 2016, vol. 6, issue 1, 73-82

Abstract: Organizational research contains a great variety of theories, models and approaches about managerial effectiveness and specifically about leadership. The present article reviews how major leadership theorists have conceptualized the characteristics of a leader, and examines the strengths and weaknesses of such concepts. The primary objective of the present review is to reveal how the current leadership theories are applied in higher education institutions. This review concludes with an academic leadership summary for educational institutions to enhance managerial effectiveness, which would also be beneficial to future research for studying relationships between specific leadership styles and effectiveness in higher education.
