This study aimed to determine the correlation between personal productivity through research involvement and motivational factors among Faculty Members of Business Administration Department. It also aimed to test the difference on these factors when the teachers were grouped according to selected profile variables. The study used quantitative descriptive research using survey method. The findings revealed that research productivity has nothing to do with motivational factors in conducting research. Results also indicated that the respondents have high level of agreement that their personal research productivity is mostly affected by the time they spent with the family, teaching load, research resources and research oriented culture, while self-confidence, lack of social connection and research fund did not affect their research productivity. On the other hand, in terms of motivational factors, the respondents agree that respect and admiration; peer recognition; enjoyment and performance evaluation; development and improve research skills and knowledge and contribution to the society are the motivating factors for them to conduct research.
