Abstract


The objective of this study is to investigate the impact of implementing strategic management, lecturer professionalism, and controlling learning quality on student competency at private universities in Indonesia. The research utilized a sample size of 182 respondents, selected through a stratified random sampling method. Data were collected using structured questionnaires distributed to lecturers and students of private universities. The data were then analyzed using the Structural Equation Modeling technique, employing the Smart Partial Least Square application program to ensure robust and reliable results. The research findings indicate several key factors that have a positive and significant impact on student competency, lecturer professionalism, and learning quality control at private universities in Indonesia. Firstly, the application of strategic management, lecturer professionalism, and learning quality control all contribute to enhancing student competency. This indicates that a well-implemented strategic management framework, along with professional and competent lecturers, significantly improves student learning outcomes. Secondly, the implementation of strategic management and quality control of learning positively affects the professionalism of lecturers. This highlights the importance of strategic initiatives and rigorous quality control measures in fostering a professional academic environment. Thirdly, the implementation of strategic management has a positive impact on controlling the quality of learning. Effective strategic management practices ensure that educational institutions maintain high standards of teaching and learning processes. Lastly, the control of learning quality partially mediates the relationship between implementing strategic management and student competence as well as lecturer professionalism. This mediation effect   suggests that quality control mechanisms are crucial in translating strategic management efforts into tangible improvements in both student and lecturer performance. These findings underscore the importance of strategic management, lecturer professionalism, and quality control in enhancing the educational outcomes of private universities in Indonesia. Future research could explore the specific components of strategic management and quality control that most significantly influence educational quality, as well as investigate these relationships in different regional contexts.
