The data was collected using a questionnaire on a sample consisting of 411 students representing different colleges. The findings showed that the students perceived their faculty members implementing critical thinking strategies while delivering the educational administration courses contents, and they were developing leadership concepts. Additionally, demographic factors were found to generally affect students' perceptions. Regression analyses showed that providing feedback and assessment of learning was the most significant predictor explaining the change in mastering leadership concepts.
