This research investigated the influence of teacher-student exchange and SECI model on the higher institutions students academic performance and preparedness for the workplace. Using a sample size of 214 business education students drawn from 6 programmes, the hierarchical multiple regressions was used to show relationships based on the variables. The statistical analysis showed that only age of the students had a significant relationship with the dependent variables. Externalisation and internalisation influenced students preparedness for the work place, while teachers-student exchange and socialisation had significant effects on students academic performance. The study recommended that teachers in higher institutions should enhance students capacity to interact continuously in ways that exploit tacit-explicit knowledge interactions and explore explicit-tacit knowledge interactions. Moreover, students should be helped to understand that performing excellently academically and being prepared for the workplace is a continuous chain of activity that ordinarily should not be broken.
