Main Article Content

John N. N. Ugoani

Abstract

Education and training place different demands on institutions and the workforce, as well as the educators themselves. Both education and training are essential to organizational profitability. Clear separation and understanding of management education and training strategy provide advantage but management education curriculum allows educators to concentrate on their essential message to develop the specialized technical and management capacity needed to link training and competencies more closely to the economy and the world of work. This situation has given rise to the refocusing of traditional education practices to involve newly emerging management education concepts that are embedded in the components of emotional intelligence. The survey method was used for the study, and it was found that emotional intelligence has significant positive relationship with management education.
