Abstract: The purpose of this project is to better understand how College of Business undergraduate student academic performance is related to their level of emotional intelligence. It is also the goal of the study to examine the differences in emotional intelligence that may exist between disciplines within the College of Business. The results of this research can be used in the adaptation of how professors teach College of Business students, in an effort to better prepare them for a professional career in business or management. The comparison of emotional intelligence may also allow students to better choose a specific field of study within the College of Business or tailor their study habits to encourage their academic success. Questions to be addressed: • Does a student’s emotional intelligence show a significant correlation with academic success? • Is there a significant difference between areas of study within the College of Business? • How can this research be used or expanded in the future? Data was collected via a 40 question survey. The initial findings indicate that there is a correlation between a student’s self-reported GPA range and their surveyed emotional intelligence score, but when comparing all three factors of GPA, major, and emotional intelligence there is a not a statistical difference.
