Resumo

The aim of this study was to research the effects of using the Learning School to improve competency criteria of managers in Bank Saderat Iran and determine the effect of each criterion of this school. By using a Morgan table and assuming an unlimited population size, 384 individuals were randomly selected. After choosing six core competencies of the managers, data was collected using a 47-item questionnaire. After confirming the questionnaire’s validity using SPSS and a Spearman's test, the significant correlation of all criteria was established, excepting for personality traits and the implementation of the learning school. Finally, using the Topsis method, criteria was ranked as follows: attitude, knowledge, capability and personality traits (directly proportional). The results of this study can be used in the decision-making process for the selection, appointment and improvement of senior managers in economic organizations in the country.
