The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of stressors on academic performance of students of management sciences. Though researchers have explored stress from different aspects, yet more work is required to explore this issue in management sciences’ students of developing countries like Pakistan. This study tries to make an in-depth investigation into impact on academic performance due to four stressors i.e. financial stressors, course load, time management and social support. A quantitative approach has been adopted. The sample consists of 155 students from three universities located in Islamabad out of which response rate was 94 per cent. Results indicate that two main stressors of course load and social support affect the academic performance of students of management sciences.
