Discipline: Business, Governance



The centerpiece of the study is the dominant logic, quantum leadership practices, and entrepreneurial aptitude perceived by business students and non-business students from public and private higher education institutions (HEIs) in Bukidnon. The study used the descriptive method. Questionnaires were distributed to and casual interviews were organized for randomly selected Business and Accountancy 4th year students in 2 public universities and 2 private higher education institutions. There were 160 student respondents. The business and non-business students agree about proactiveness, routines, and learning in the dominant logic set of practices and strongly agree about external orientations. Both groups also agree about autopoietic flow, and uncertainty and ambiguity in the quantum leadership set of practices. There was a significant difference in the perceptions of business and non-business students about dominant logic and quantum leadership practices. Dominant logic and quantum leadership have significant correlations with entrepreneurial aptitude. Students from private and public educational institutions have significant differences in their perceptions about dominant logic and quantum leadership. I suggest a form of priority intervention: business students ought to be provided with on-the-job-training in business establishments so they acquire a good grasp on the what and the how of business.
