Research in Higher Education Journal, v28 May 2015
China and India are the two most populous countries on the planet. To deal with the myriad of challenges and opportunities these countries face will require leadership. The future leaders who will address many of these issues come from institutions of higher education. But, do these students have the requisite leadership training and does it vary by academic major? Using the Bolman and Deal Four Frame Model this study determined the leadership styles and frames of students preparing to enter into the workforce and compared the results by country and academic major. Statistically significant differences were revealed.
