Abstract

Students are indispensable asset in any educational institutions; therefore, their academic performance is essential to schools as it reflects their competencies that can be of use when serving the community at large. This study looked into the relationship of students’ study behavior on their academic performance. Multiple regression analysis was utilized in the study. There were ninety-nine (99) hospitality management students participated in the study who were enrolled during the second semester of academic year 2015-2016. This study employed Bliss et al., (1993, 2004) study behavior inventory. Collectively, the study confirmed Schunk et al., (1994); Yumusak et al., (2007); Hughes et al., (2007) that the study behavior is predictive to students’ academic performance. However, the study further confirmed that only the academic self-efficacy was found to be a good predictor of one’s educational performance (Sharma et al., 2014). The result of the study supports the institutions’ academic paradigm shift in the practice and application of outcomes-based education.
