The objective of the study was to assess the impact of university teachers' emotional intelligence on their approach to decision-making. Employing quantitative methods, the study aimed to investigate how emotional intelligence influenced various decision-making styles among teachers of selected universities in a major city in Pakistan, Peshawar. The study population consisted of 1,779 university teachers.  A sample of 317 teachers was randomly selected for the study. Data were collected using two standardized questionnaires. The questionnaires containing 59 items were distributed. Seven basic demographic questions were also included. After obtaining data, hypotheses were tested through regression analysis. Results revealed that emotional intelligence predicts decision making styles of university teachers. Based on the major contributing factors identified, such as teachers' self-confidence and their ability to regulate and manage emotions, the study could recommend strategies or interventions including emotional intelligence training, professional workshops and support system in universities.
