Abstract: Intellectual capital management is a new topic that has theoretically been introduced in recent years on a global scale. This capital is now considered as an invaluable resource and a key for measuring governments growth and development. This paper is aimed to compare Iran’s intellectual capital of the past 15 years with other countries of the region. It is argued that the analysis would shade some light on the Islamic Republic of Iran’s vision of 1404. For this purpose, we first used the Lin & Edvinson’s model (2011) and adjusted it in order to cope with the limitations of the data. A total of 24 indicators in four dimensions of human capital, process capital, market Capital and renewal capital were used in this analysis. Since the financial capital is a tangible assets of a country, we discard it from this assessment. In this research, data on intellectual capital indicators, which had been produced between 2001 and 2015 by World Bank and other international sources, was collected and analysed. The results of this analysis, indicate were does Iran’s intellectual capital locate, compared to other countries of the region.. The results also show that there is a significant positive relationship between intellectual capital and financial capital. The upshot of this study can be used by policy makers who are in position of designing plans to upgrade Iran's status in the region.
