The nature of the study is quantitative and survey research. The sample size of 205 respondents was taken and the data was collected through a questionnaire based on Likert scale, using convenient sampling method. For the purpose of data analysis statistical tools like Correlation and Multiple Regression analysis have been used. It was concluded that training and development does have a significant impact on the performance of an individual faculty member. It is further concluded that the faculty members’ performance was greatly affected by other factors such as good pay, compensation package and extra-curricular leisure factors. These factors tend to increase their motivation and willingness to work which in turn had considerable impact on their performance. On the basis of results and conclusion following recommendations have been made, 1) Since training & development is a significant impact for employees’ performance, therefore, HR departments of Business Schools should give more attention and make their strategies for regular training programs, 2) Management should adopt the monetary benefits strategies apart from training & development for the faculty members in order to enhance the performance.
