The success of organizations largely depends on management competencies of managers. This study aimed to determine the management competencies in planning, organizing, leading and controlling (P-O-L-C) of educational managers in performance of trilogy functions in Instruction, Research and Extension of MIMAROPA State Universities and Colleges (SUCs). The study employed descriptive-comparative design. Self-structured questionnaires were used in survey to gather data, which were tested using ANOVA and t-test. Findings revealed that managers in MIMARO SUCs have high extent competencies in P-O-L-C. Leading is given more focus while organizing received the least attention. As to trilogy functions, Instruction ranked first; followed by Extension and Research on the last rank. Though, there are differences in mean ratings of responses from managers and faculty respondents, no significant differences were found when they were statistically examined. It is concluded that competencies of managers in P-O-L-C are highly relevant and contributing to the excellent performance of SUCs. It is recommended that P-O-L-C be performed in the same extent of competencies to ensure the success of performance of SUCs’ functions.
