Everyone is working hard to be successful in his/her career and life overall as well. However, that requires an individual to be more ethical, committed, and self-contented towards his/her expected goal. Hence, this study aims to explore the influence of Islamic work ethics (IWE) on academics' career success (ACS), besides the role of psychological capital (PsyCap) as mediation between IWE and ACS. The study follows a deductive methodological approach, while the Structural Equation Modelling technique (SEM) applied for analyzing the model. The data was collected from full-time academic staff in public universities in Sudan. After analyzing 236 questionnaires, the findings indicated that IWE is positively related to the ACS. Furthermore, PsyCap was a significant mediator between IWE and ACS. Accordingly, these results were contributed to the theory of conservation of resource (COR) by identifying the role of IWE as one of the peace resources that help academic staff in generating additional resources to achieve their career goals. Lastly, the practical implications and new streams for further studies are discussed. © 2022 Hamdard Foundation Pakistan. All rights reserved.
