Background and Objective: Emotional intelligence is a series of emotions, feelings, social knowledge and abilities that prepare people to adapt to the environment. Considering the importance of emotional intelligence and lack of information about its quantity among students, this study aimed to investigate emotional intelligence of students.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 303 students of the Jundishapur, Azad and Chamran Universities of Ahvaz in 2014. Data was collected by demographic checklist and emotional intelligence Bradbry-Graves questionnaire and analyzed by SPSS19 software using descriptive (mean and standard deviation) and inferential (t-test, ANOVA, Tukey) statistical methods.

Results: Emotional intelligence of most students (77.23%) was in the middle range. Mean of emotional intelligence score of students was 77.02±9.26 and the mean scores of self-consciousness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management subscales were 82.81±5.58, 70.47±13.93, 81.36±7.30 and 73.44±10.26, respectively. Results showed no significant relationship between total emotional intelligence and students age, sex, job, marital status, degree, overall grade point average and kind of university, while a significant relationship was seen between some emotional intelligence subscales and above variables (p<0.05).

Conclusion: As emotional intelligence of most students was medium and regarding its importance in students’ health promotion and their academic improvement, it is suggested that the university authorities should pay more attention to developing educational programs in the dimension of emotional intelligence among students.

Key words: Emotional Intelligence, Academic improvement, Student, Ahvaz.
