Although a large and steadily growing research literature attests to an interest in management and entrepreneurship, little research has focused on comparative assessment of the career choices and trajectories of managers and entrepreneurs. This timely book fills the gap by presenting an assessment of early influences on the career choice of managers and entrepreneurs, their attitudes at the start of their careers as students, and in their later employment experiences. The distinguished group of contributors also examine the influence of an MBA education on the later work and life experiences of managers and entrepreneurs. The extent to which this sought after degree aids achievement of intended careers is investigated, as is the debate on linkages between career choices, cross cultural issues, and international and interdisciplinary perspectives. This book extends the focus on a significant human experience - the world of work - beyond that offered by traditional vocational choices, highlighting the plurality of perspectives now offered by different cultures globally. As such, it will be of great interest to students, academics and practitioners with an interest in career trajectories within the realms of management and entrepreneurship.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Managerial and entrepreneurial careers share various characteristics but they also differ from each other. This means that it is important that we improve our understanding of the choices that individuals make with regard to careers in these areas. This research companion provides a rich variety of insights and evidence from a range of perspectives and culture to help with this challenging task.' -- Tony Watson, Nottingham University, UK
`This significant, truly international collection of excellent contributions illuminates key antecedents, and consequences in management and entrepreneurship career choice from different cultural, disciplinary and theoretical perspectives. The various chapters offer a unique opportunity to study career choice in the most comprehensive manner; they provide a unique lens which allows for a view that is cross-level, cross-cultural, cross-national and both theoretically and empirically rigorous. OEzbilgin and Malach-Pines deserve praise for this collection, which in my opinion, promises to be a great addition to the career research literature.' -- Yoav Vardi, Tel Aviv University, Israel
`The book is highly recommended to researchers, teachers and students in the fields of management, entrepreneurship, sociology, psychology and human resources.' -- Tsvi Vinig, University of Amsterdam Business School and Science Park Amsterdam Center for Entrepreneurship, The Netherlands
