Universities within the tertiary education system perform an imperative job in developing the high-level researchers, specialists, scientists and professionals, required by the economy. World-class University is a need of today. The development of a world-class university requires strong leadership as it has widespread effects on the overall performance of the university. This research focused on the improvement of university leadership based on issues and problems related to it. In this regard, the study explored the effects of managerial competency, self-efficacy and learning orientation as predictors of university leaders’ job performance to enhance their effectiveness and efficiency. The notion of entrepreneurial leadership has received a somewhat little concentration in the tertiary education leadership studies. So the study proposed and analysed the mediating effect of entrepreneurial leadership through which university leaders can improve their job performance. In addition to that moderating effect of the dynamic environment was also examined on the above-stated relationships. The research used a quantitative method through survey instrument and 242 usable questionnaires were collected from the leaders of public higher education institutions of Punjab, Pakistan. Partial Least Squares (PLS) was employed to analyse the data. Results showed support for the theoretical model that was studied. The results implied that managerial competency, self-efficacy, and learning orientation are linked with performance. The mediating process was also empirically justified, but the moderating effect of the dynamic environment was not found on the proposed model. The study has validation for a theoretical framework to trigger the future research and theory on edifying university leadership and to comprehend how such leadership develop and has significance for effective job performance. By summarising the results of this research and building a link to its useful applications the study is also useful and has importance for policy makers, academicians and practitioners for further improving and developing university leadership.
