Project details

Globalization is an important aspect of most business courses today and its impact on students can not be underestimated. In fact, some students appear to choose their college major based on their expectations of working abroad after graduation. Business faculty may be responsible for educating these future international business leaders regarding many aspects of living abroad that relate to their chosen major, including differences in perceptions of occupational stereotypes in other countries. This paper investigates perceived differences between American. and English students in stereotypical attributes of six occupations. Analysis indicates differences in perceptions between the two groups.
