Time has always been used as an excuse by educational administrators for not meeting their expected targets. This paper has attempted to examine the relative importance of time as a resource available to administrators in the course of carrying out policy formulations and implementation of educational activities to achieve institutional goals. In order to describe the practice of effective time management by administrators, it became necessary for this work to analyse the specific tasks of administration, the knowledge of which will guide the administrator in proper scheduling of tasks, ordering of priorities and allocation of time according to their degree of importance in achieving educationally productive goals. It also emphasised that proper time management is essential to the accomplishment of institutional goals and objectives. Finally, some recommendations on how to improve administration through proper time management were outlined.
