Profits or Employment: Priorities of Future Managers

Grzegorz Wojtkowiak


The aim of this study was to identify possible differences between the basic grounds behind managerial decisions taken by university students in different countries. This paper was inspired by the article ‘Profit, Layoffs, and Priorities’ by Daniel G. Arce and Sherry Xin Li, who repeated and extended A. Rubinstein’s research. As the result of research, a hypothesis was tested. This was that with when students of technology are compared with economics students, they tend to be more driven by the need to maximise profit than to secure the interests of employees. Moreover, the research was expanded and as the result, another hypothesis was created that: the students who have a relatively stable job are more driven by the need to maximise profits than the wish to maintain a higher level of employment. The hypothesis was not verified but the base for future discussion was prepared.
