The introduction to the school cooperatives in Malaysia is a milestone to equip students with the business management and entrepreneurial skills and knowledge. Even though the cooperative entity is known for its uniqueness, the management of this entity has been facing many challenges and obstacles in their effort to fulfil the socio-economic objectives. They are far from achieving sustainability and success. Thus, the objective of this study is to determine the correlation between management functions and the success of school cooperatives. Quantitative method is used in this study and the data is collected by using questionnaires. Sample of this study is 120 board members of the school cooperatives in ten selected secondary schools in the state of Perak, Malaysia. Data analysis is done by using descriptive and inferential analysis. It is found that the four management functions in school cooperatives is being practised at high level. The correlation test has shown a moderately positive and significant relationship between the controlling function and leadership function with the success of school cooperatives, while the organizing function and the planning function has shown a weak but significant relationship. Exposure on management functions to the board members in school cooperatives through appropriate training and activities can help to increase the success of school cooperatives in the future
