Do educational qualifications, academic rank and one’s position predict job satisfaction in private universities in Uganda?

This paper presents part of the findings of the study carried out in 13 private universities in Uganda among the academic officials, namely Principals of Colleges, Directors of institutes, Deans of faculties, their deputies or assistants and heads of department. The study used a descriptive survey design which involved quantitative and qualitative approaches. Quantitative data was analysed using the Analysis of Variance because of the categorical nature of the variables. Results from 296 respondents who were chosen to participate in the study using universal and purposive sampling, revealed that there is a significant relationship between academic officials’ educational qualifications and their job satisfaction (sig .001); there is a significant relationship between academic officials’ rank and their job satisfaction (sig .005); and there is no significant relationship between academic officials’ position and their job satisfaction (sig .220).
