The design of this study is descriptive and verification research to analyze the causality between the studied variables. Data processing used descriptive analysis techniques and hypothesis testing with the Structural Equation Model (SEM). The results showed that market orientation, innovation orientation, and learning orientation had a significant effect on the performance and competitiveness of private universities. To increase the performance and competitiveness, leaders must be able to create an appropriate market orientation model and focus on service quality by considering the internal conditions of private universities.
