The mission of universities in the context of time, in keeping with global developments and changes, has evolved to meet the needs of societies, and is moving towards participation in the entrepreneurial paradigm. In other words, in a world where globalization plays an important role in the process of social and economic changes, so the role of universities has changed with respect to new responsibilities for a changing society, such as the national economy, social development, the reduction of public finances and the educational market. Hence, the scientific model of this research was based on a qualitative interview with university’s heads and elites and a two-way sampling method for snowball. Finally, 22 qualitative interviews were conducted by referring to experts. Using Grendard's theory, the entrepreneurial university’ components were identified at Payame Noor University. Afterwards, the necessity of each components of the extracted model was investigated by coding in three stages: Open, Axial and selective analysis. The findings represented two main extraction codes and then that codes were grouped in 9 axes. Finally, the results of the research illustrated that the identified categories those had the greatest impact on the creation of the entrepreneurship university were internal factors (service quality, financial resources, ability, organizational structure, organizational culture, educational and research policies, management and leadership) and external factors (national and regional background factors, international factors), too.
