|Abstract:||Existing evidence indicate that there is difficulties in instituting and sustaining budget practices over time due to perceived low financial standing of the public sector. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of budget management to financial performance in public and private Universities in Juba city, South Sudan. Specifically, the study was set out to; find out the relationship between budget planning and financial performance in public and private Universities in Juba city, South Sudan; identify the relation between budgetary participation and financial performance in public and private Universities in Juba city, South Sudan; and assess how Budgetary control links to financial performance in public and private Universities in Juba city, South Sudan. The study employed the descriptive comparative design. A sample size of 48 respondents was derived from the target population of 55 from Catholic University (CUOSS) and Juba University (JU) in South Sudan using the Krejcie and Morgan table. The qualitative and quantitative approaches were employed to analyse the data collected through questionnaire. The results of qualitative analyses, using frequency counts and percentage distributions, means and standard deviations, show that majority of the respondents were males; majority of the respondents had postgraduate education; and that the majority of respondents in CUOSS (50%) and JU (50%) have between 1-3 and more than 8 years experience respectively. The results of quantitative analyses conducted using regression model show that budget planning has a significant positive effect on financial performance at both CUOSS and JU. Further yet, there is an associative relationship between the two variables at both universities. It was further noted that there was a variation of 49% and 42.4% on financial performance at CUOSS and Juba University respectively. This implies that other components not studied in this research contribute 51% and 57.6% of the variance in the dependent variable. The results also showed that budgetary participation has a significant positive effect on financial performance at CUOSS but rather at Juba University. The results further indicate that budgetary control links has significant effect on financial performance in public and private Universities in Juba city, South Sudan. The researcher recommended since there was strong relationship in budget planning and financial performance in Juba University compared to catholic University, Juba University should continue to employ budget planning while Catholic University should start practicing budget planning if it is to prosper in sound financial management. It was also recommended that the University management should ensure that all concerned department should actively participate in budget management if they are to achieve institutional goal. The accrediting institution for higher education should conduct continues research on financial performance to find out whether institutions have functional budget management and also competent staff are involved in the monitoring and control.|
