Abstract

Becoming an entrepreneurial university is the key strategy that needs to be adopted by public universities at present. When becoming an entrepreneurial university they need to adopt innovative and entrepreneurial approaches in the provision of their products and services and develop partnerships, networks and other relationships with public and private organizations. To adopt for all these internal governance structure (university structure and leadership) of the public universities plays a key role. This research intends to identify how far Sri Lankan public universities organizational structure and entrepreneurial leadership behavior has supported on becoming entrepreneurial universities. The study has developed two hypothesis and primary data collected from four public universities has been analyzed through regression analysis. Finally, outcomes of this research identified that university structure has a significant negative impact in the process of becoming an entrepreneurial university as well as entrepreneurial leadership behavior is still lacking from Sri Lankan context.
