Abstract: This study examines the effect of academia skill management on universities competitiveness in Nigeria private universities. A descriptive research method Structural Equation model (AMOS 22) was applied to analyse the two hundred and seventy four copies of valid questionnaire completed by faculty members of the selected universities in South-West Nigeria using stratified and simple random sampling techniques. However, the results show close relationships between the dependent and independent variables. The study indicated that efficient skill management of faculty have positive significant implications on institutions competitiveness. This suggests that skill attraction, skill development, skill utilisation and skill retention have significant effects on teaching, research and innovation excellence and subsequently enhance universitys competitiveness.
