The study was conducted in order to determine the influence of emotional intelligence on the managements of the universities of San Martín province. The approach was quantitative, applied research, explanatory level, with pre-experimental design and the study was longitudinal as it was applied in two stages. The population and sample consisted of 18 managers and the sampling was not probabilistic. A questionnaire for management was applied with a pre- and posttest with a single experimental group, applying fifteen workshops in order to reinforce emotional intelligence. For the analysis of the data, the Wilcoxon test was used; a nonparametric test to determine the influence between both variables. Results have shown that there was a significant difference (p=0.005<0.01) between the scores before and after the workshop, concluding that the emotional intelligence influences the managements of the universities of San Martín province with a bilateral significance level of 0.010. Emotional intelligence influences the institutional management dimension of managements with a bilateral significance level of 0.010; however it does not influence the leadership and teamwork dimensions of those, given that the bilateral significance level was 0.326. It also does not affect the cognitive dimensions of managements, since the bilateral significance level was 0.061 but it influences the attitudinal valuation dimension of managements with a bilateral significance level of 0.016.
