It has become challenging to increase university transparency and accountability through performance monitoring and reporting. Universities are increasingly being required to provide performance indicators to various stakeholders. Universities may use the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) as one strategy. This study aims to show how balanced scorecard can be applied to universities through the example of Adiyaman University (ADYU) from Turkey. For this reason, 2015-2019 Strategic Plan of Adiyaman University has been examined according to the four dimensions of the balanced scorecard and a model has been developed for how the balanced scorecard can be. Indirect research method is used to access the necessary scientific data. The model applied to a Turkish university demonstrates potential future benefits of using the BSC model in universities.
