Abstract: This study is to understand the antecedents of self-awareness critical thinking specifically for pre-service managerial practitioners in management education. Participants in this study were 138 graduate and undergraduate students taking less than 15 minutes to complete the 18-item questionnaire in addition to the demographic items. Of the participants, 55.1% (n=76) were undergraduate and 44.9% (n=62) were graduate students. In addition, the 53.6% (n=74) of the participants have prior experiences being teaching assistance and research assistance. The finding indicates that reasoning and merits perception tend to be the intervening factors between sense of challenge and self-awareness of critical thinking. On the other hand, sense of alert does not show its mediating effect between sense of challenge and critical thinking. Differential effect was being examined and practical implication were discussed.
