This study investigated the influence of scholastic performance, motivational variables, and the use of various learning strategies on module performance in the subject Business Management at a South African university. Undergraduate Business Management students(n = 373) were surveyed using the MSLQ instrument, after completing a Business Management module. The empirical results reveal that scholastic performance(Grade 12 results) is a strong predictor of successful completion of Business Management modules at university level. The results also suggest that the motivational variable "self-efficacy: mastery (learning material)" and the learning strategy "cognitive: monitoring activities (questioning and understanding)" both impact positively on academic performance in Business Management.
