Successful learning in the training environment may not be enough to translate the acquired skills, attitude, and knowledge to the work environment. Transfer of training, is more than a function of original learning in a training program (Atkinson, 1972, Fleishman.1953). The purpose of this study, conducted among engineering students of a large private university, is to understand whether learning goal orientation and general self efficacy can significantly influence transfer of training. Responses were collected from engineering students who attended a workshop on Conceptualizing innovative ideas for new products. The study used scales developed by Button et all (1996) to measure learning goal orientation. General Self Efficacy was quantified using an adapted version of the scale developed by Sherer and Maddux (1982). Transfer of training scale from Xiaos (1996) study was also used. Results indicate that all the Learning Goal Orientation and General Self Efficacy respectively explain about 21.2 % and 33.6 % variations in and therefore significantly influence transfer of training and also have positive relationship with transfer of training
