Organizational effectiveness is the main concern of all higher education institutes. Over the years there have been many different models of effectiveness along with the criteria for measuring organizational effectiveness. In this paper, four main models of organizational effectiveness namely the goal approach, the system resource approach, the process approach and the strategic constituency approach are reviewed. Moreover, this paper introduces several models of organizational effectiveness in higher education. Then, a brief review is made on some empirical studies that used the Cameron's (1978) model of organizational effectiveness. In the end, the paper suggests that Cameron's (1978) model seems the most appropriate for studying organizational effectiveness in higher education.
