This study explored the perceptions of managerial career attainment of graduating MBA students and compared them to previous research on the actual determinants of career attainment. Results suggest that students did seem to have a good grasp of which determinants are important to managerial career attainment. Business school faculty are encouraged to prepare MBA students for the organizational realities that they will likely experience during their careers.
