Descriptive research design was used in the study. Five hundred (500) respondents were selected from five (5) selected Faculties in the University of Ibadan; Oyo State; Nigeria. The respondents were measured with relevant adapted standardized scale (instruments) which include academic self- concept scale; academic engagement scale and achievement motivation scale and the data obtained was analyzed using the Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) and Multiple regression statistical analysis of the Statistical Package for the Social Science (SPSS). Two research Questions and Two Research Hypotheses were raised and answered in the study. The result showed that there was significant relationship between academic engagement and achievement motivation among post graduate students (r=0.967; P<0.05) ; there was significant relationship between academic self-concept and achievement motivation (r=0.782; P<0.05) ; the independent variables (academic engagement and academic selfconcept) when pulled together have significant effects on the achievement motivation among the post graduate students (R (adjusted) =.972 & R2 ( adjusted) =.956 and each of the independent variables made a significant contribution to the prediction of post graduate students achievement motivation. In terms of magnitude of contribution; academic engagement made the most significant contribution (Beta =1.151; t=37.429; p<0.05) to the prediction follow by Academic Self-concept (Beta=.131; t=6.055; p<0.05). In view of these findings; the study stressed and advocated the need for the management and directors of the schools to provide conducive environment for the students and other staff in the school and that the school counsellors need to enlighten the students on how to improve the level of their academic self- concept and academic engagement in the school.
