To increase the success level of university students and to be trained as qualified individuals are the driving force of the country's economy and social development. In the literature, many academic studies towards this aim were done by factor analysis method; but it seems that no study has been done for determining the factors that affect the success of students studying in the Department of Econometrics. In this study, to 210 students studying in the Department of Econometrics at Manisa Celal Bayar University Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences in 2015-2016 education period a questionnaire consisting of 54 questions was applied. As a result of factor analysis 8 factors were found that affect students' achievements. These factors explain 65% of the variance.
