This chapter examined the perceptions of students taking a subject entitled "Service Leadership" at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. After taking the subject, the students were invited to respond to a subjective outcome evaluation measure assessing the perceived program qualities, instructor qualities and perceived benefits of the subject. Regarding the descriptive profile of responses to the items, students displayed positive perceptions of the subject content and teachers, and most of them regarded the subject to be beneficial to their development of service leadership qualities. While the three dimensions of subjective outcome were significantly correlated, perceived program qualities but not perceived instructor qualities predicted perceived effectiveness of the program.
