Motivation identified as an internal factor that controls the thoughts and actions of a person. Someone who is highly motivated shows seriousness in their work, supported by the development of the desired attitude and personality. Studies have shown our success greatly influenced by the level of motivation, which provides a distinct advantage to an organization. In this case, it is essential to identify the level of student motivation, as a vital source of employment to the public and private agencies, and the outer elements of motivation closely observed as a person’s unique characteristic having an impact towards employer’s hiring strategy. Many factors influence a person’s motivation. About the theory put forward by Maslow’s needs hierarchy, the authors aim to examine whether the accomplishment of those needs, arranged in a hierarchy influence the students’ motivation. A cross-sectional study conducted and an adapted questionnaire distributed among the students. Regression analysis indicated that only three factors identified as significant contributors to motivation. Findings give good input to UiTM in bringing together human resources and facilities planning to ensure that students’ needs are achieved and thus increase their motivation level.
