Education institutions worldwide have always given a great emphasis on the factors governing the performance of their students. There have been many studies that sought to examine this issue and most of these studies have focused on pointing out the hard work, demographic variables (education, income, age, marital status), self-motivation as factors that have a significant effect on the MBA student's academic performance. Besides these factors, some social (student-class mates relationships, student-lecturer relationships), individual (work experience, skills) and organizational (location, work atmosphere, technology facilities) factors are assumed to have effect on MBA student's academic success.
