Abstract

Assertions that time management results in less stress, healthier employees, and more effective organizations have received little empirical examination. This study investigates the influence of perceived time management (operationalized as perceived control over time) as a stress coping strategy among college students. Also, the influence of perceived time management on valued student outcomes such as academic performance, problem-solving ability, and health are also investigated. Results from a sample of 164 college students found low levels of stress and high levels of academic performance, problem-solving ability, and health for students that perceived high levels of perceived control over time compared to students who perceived low control over time. Discussion of the study findings, implications, and direction for future research is presented.
