We examine the degree to which conceptual ability, emotional intelligence, and relationship management impact each other, as well as whether or not country cultural differences have an impact on these relationships, while controlling for gender differences. The subjects are 496 university business students from the United States, France, and Germany. This is the first research study of which we are aware that examines this set of relationships. Our results support the hypotheses which suggest positive relationships between these variables.
