This study aimed to determine the motivation, satisfaction and difficulty encountered by HEI in Manila graduate students in pursuing graduate studies. The study revealed that most of the respondents were female, single, belong to the 20 – 29 age brackets with only about 1-5 in the teaching / non-teaching profession. Many are still on the process of completing their master’s and their doctorate degree. Most of the respondents are in the teaching profession. Moreover, upgrade qualifications and increase of self-esteem were perceived extremely influential by the respondents. Working and studying, pressure from additional work / assignments and too many were very difficult. And as to the level of satisfaction, they perceived improved professional competence as very satisfactory. The researchers recommend that NBC #461 final print out should be known to all concern in the shortest time and position reclassification/promotion be provided accordingly, likewise, those employed at either private / public institutions must be promoted too. The Institutions should allocate larger budget for the teaching and non- teaching staff for developments. The University should provide a program that will lessen faculty work load while attending on a graduate school.
