—This study investigates the cross-cultural perspectives and the effectiveness of overall educational management of Pakistan and Malaysia through performance, achievement motivation and job satisfaction of their teaching faculties. It was hypothesized that “Overall performance, achievement motivation and job satisfaction of Pakistani and Malaysian university teachers would differ”. The sample comprised of 120 Chairpersons/heads and their teaching faculties including 60 from Pakistani and 60 from Malaysian Universities. HODs rated teachers on their performance while two senior regular teachers filled achievement motivation and job satisfaction scale. Results indicate that achievement motivation and job satisfaction of Malaysian faculties was significantly more than Pakistani teaching faculties, whereas no significant difference was noted in performance of Malaysian and Pakistani teaching faculties working under their respective heads of educational institution.
