Abstract: This study was carried out in 13 private universities to explore the academic officials': profile; level of managerial techniques in the aspects of concern for people and for production; degree of satisfaction with extrinsic factors; a significant difference in their level of managerial techniques and degree of satisfaction with extrinsic factors between the males and females, and between sectarian and non- sectarian universities. It also sought to examine whether a significant relationship exister between the level of managerial techniques and the degree of satisfaction with extrinsic factors. The data were analyzed using frequency and percentage distribution, the mean, chi-square, ANOVA, t-test, and the Pearson Product Moment Correlation. Results from 296 respondents revealed that majority of the respondents were in middle adulthood, were males, were at the rank of lecturer, and had served between 1-3 years. Concern for people and for production were each treated as independent entities based on the Managerial Grid Model developed by Robert Blake and Jane S. Mouton. It was found out that 56.8% of the respondents had high concern for production and only 3.0% had low concern for production. 73.6% had high concern for people, and only 7.0 % had low concern for people. Majority of the respondents (57.8%) were using paternalistic and opportunistic management, which do not have fixed locations on the Managerial Grid. The least used technique is dictatorial (0.3%). They are however more people - oriented than production - oriented. Majority (53.4%) exhibited low level of satisfaction. The observed p-values of .001, .005,.000, and .000 however reveal that there was a significant positive correlation between education qualifications, academic rank, number years in present position, and university type respectively, with satisfaction. The observed p-values of .056 and .069 revealed that there was no significant difference in the level of managerial techniques between males and females, and that there was no significant difference in the degree of satisfaction with extrinsic factors between males and females respectively. However, the observed p-values of 0.032 and .000 reveal that there was a significant difference in the level of dominant managerial techniques between sectarian and non-sectarian universities; and that there was a significant difference in the degree of satisfaction with extrinsic factors of academic officials. There was no significant relationship between managerial techniques and satisfaction with extrinsic factors of academic officials. It was thus recommended that universities should improve on the extrinsic factors, and strive for team management.
