RAMIREZ, Patricio E  y  FUENTES, Carolina A. Happiness and Academic Performance: Moderating Effect of Happiness on Selection Indicators and Academic Performance of Students of Commercial Engineering. Form. Univ. [online]. 2013, vol.6, n.3, pp.21-30. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062013000300004.

This paper explores the effect of happiness on the academic performance of university students of commercial engineering of the Universidad Católica del Norte in Chile. The main objective of this study is to measure the moderating effect of subjective happiness on the relationship between university selection indicators and academic performance of students. The empirical analysis is based on a sample of 176 students of different academic levels. From these data the proposed structural equation model using the Partial Least Squares technique (PLS) was applied. In addition to confirming the predictive relationship between indicators of university selection and academic performance in the sample, the results confirm that happiness has a significant positive effect on the relationship between indicators of university selection and academic performance.

Palabras clave : happiness; academic performance; university selection; partial least squares.
