Abstract: The study examines the relationship between job related factors (pay, promotion opportunities, supervision and work-schedule flexibility), job satisfaction and organisational commitment of teaching staff of Indian B-schools using structure equation modelling (LISREL 8.5). The study is based on a single cross-sectional survey. In all 310 responses were generated from teachers of management institutes located in India. A self-administered questionnaire with items related to the study dimensions was deployed for the study. It was found that pay satisfaction and work-schedule flexibility do have a positive relationship with job satisfaction and commitment. Satisfaction with supervision was positively correlated to job satisfaction only. The study is unique in the sense that it is among the very few studies conducted in the context of management institutes in India. Since there is acute shortage of teachers in Indian B-schools, gaining insights into dynamics of job satisfaction and commitment can provide valuable inputs to B-schools.
