Academic Leadership: Students’ Willingness to Work During Studies

Andrzej Niemiec


Academic leadership can be perceived as a social process that engages everyone within the community. The main remaining problem is the role of students in the creation of academic leadership. This very problem is still outside the mainstream of research. The aim of this paper was to identify the determinants of the willingness to work during studies by stationary students of Poznań University of Economics and Business. Identified determinants allow to better describe academic leadership process. The methodology of research was survey and interviews. The survey was conducted in May 2018 with 120 stationary students of the last year of their studies. In addition, in order to identify the determinants for the surveys, interviews with a sample of 15 students were conducted. Our results show that 93.4% of stationary students have worked during their studies. Almost all master’s degree students work during the studying and additionally take language courses or other activities, for example, volunteering and similar activities. Our findings show that the main reason for this appears to be their self-conscious. They expect student-as-customer treatment. Our results also show that in case of Poznań University of Economics and Business, such initiative undertaken by the students is influencing academic leadership in a positive way.
