This study examined the relationship between academic integration and self-efficacy with regard to institution types and students’ majors among IM (Information Management) and CS (Computer Science) students. A Taiwanese National survey database was used to achieve the research objective. MANOVA was used to analyze the interaction effects between academic integration and self-efficacy. The independent variables were institution types and students’ majors. The results showed that students of public institutions have higher levels of self-efficacy than students of private ones. Another finding is that IM students seem to have better study strategies and habits than CS students while CS students were found to have better collaboration and satisfaction with their institutions than IM students. Counselling services and team projects are suggested to enhance students levels of academic integration and self-efficacy.
