Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The current study examined the background of managers. The theoretical perspective is demographic and psychoanalytic. The findings indicate that parents’ occupation is correlated with the career choices of their children. It was also found that difficult childhood experiences are related to the way managers perceive management. The research makes important theoretical and practical contributions to understanding the factors related to choosing a career in management, which are discussed based on demographic and psychoanalytic models.
