Today, higher education (HE) has experienced significant changes in various fields. Universities that were previously only places to transfer knowledge, research, and community services have turned into business institutions similar to companies. Competition between universities is inevitable, encouraging every university to help the community get their sympathy and trust. One of them is reinventing higher education bureaucracy. This paper aims to explain the characteristics of Higher Education entrepreneurial bureaucracy and the implementation of entrepreneurial values in improving HE's bureaucratic performance.

This study also revealed several strategic steps taken by universities in implementing entrepreneurial values and reinventing their bureaucracy.
