Problem Statement: one of the most important variables in academic situations is motivation. In new theories on motivation, belief is essential and goal orientations are one of them. Studding the origins of goal orientations stem in social-cognitive theory and Machiavellianism beliefs connected motivation (goals) and cognitions. Goals, specially, approach-performance goals relate to Machiavellianism beliefs. Purpose of Study:The aim of this research is studying the relations among Machiavellianism beliefs and goal orientations. Research Methods: To do the study, a multi-stage cluster sampling method was used and a sample of 600 students from Iranian students, were selected. Students’ Achievement Goal Orientations scale (Midgly and his colleagues, 1997), and Machiavellianism beliefs scale (Christie & Geis, 1970) were administrated to students as a group. Questionnaires validity and reliability were verified. Findings: The results of Pearson correlation showed that the mutual correlations between all components of Machiavellianism beliefs (truth, pure nature, distrust and dominance) with mastery goals were positive and significant statistically (p<0.01) and correlation between some of Machiavellianism beliefs (truth and pure nature) with approach-performance goals were positive and significant statistically (p<0.01), but for distrust and dominance with approach-performance goals were negative and not significant statistically. Correlations between some components of Machiavellianism beliefs (truth and pure nature) with avoiding-performance goals were positive and significant statistically (p<0.01) but for (distrust and dominance) with avoiding-performance goals were negative and not significant statistically. Conclusions: some of belief are essentials for education and motivation. In these situations, setting goals and context of them sould be considered for moivating students.
