Central to the significance role of higher education in the society, the issue about women absence in senior leadership position has been outstretched. The aim of this paper is to analyse the important role of women leadership within entrepreneurial university context. Although women hold lower positions in the hierarchical level of the university, identifying their unique attributes that inform the effective performance of their institutions will not only boost their confidence but also flag to academic community, policy makers and business organisations that the creative, innovative and entrepreneurial ethos of women in higher education can serve more than what is currently delivering if placed at the forefront of the system. Spotting the distinctive feature of women leadership in the new role of universities may invites more support and mechanisms from various stakeholders that will help emancipate women leadership,thus the potential to facilitate collaboration and global competitive benefit.
