Abstract:

With the emergence of private universities in Bangladesh, a substantial change has been taking place in the field of higher education for students and entrepreneurs. At present, there are 73 private universities which play a significant role in the tertiary education of Bangladesh and these universities are being regulated by the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh under The Private University Act, 2010. Besides, each university has its own leadership style to create competitive advantages which determine their position and success of these universities in this sector. The concept and characteristics of leadership in these private universities cannot be explained in simple words because leadership in the universities is mixed up with rules, regulations, hierarchical structure, friendship, respect, different touch of motivational factors, self-assessment, self-leadership and judgment. It is to mention that not only the concept of leadership, but also the practice of delegation & decentralization of authority in these universities are not revealed. Therefore, this paper has been undertaken to explore the leadership patterns of the private universities in Bangladesh
