Abstract [en]

The fact is, no organization has ever become great without exceptional leadership - without leaders who can connect the efforts of their teams to the critical objectives of the organization, who can tap the full potential of each individual on their teams, who can align systems and clarify purposes, and who can inspire trust. The purpose of the study is to investigate and compare what management styles business students from Halmstad University, Sweden, will implement. Moreover, this study shows future leaders work preferences and concerns. As a tool for the findings the managerial grid (founded in 1964 by Blake and Mounton) was incorporated with situational theory (Hersey and Blanchard, 1977). The investigation was conducted applying a theoretical framework to empirical data. By analysing leadership styles and students work preferences, it illustrates the kind of leader a business student will potentially become and which direction he/she may take. Overall, the average of 130 business students from Halmstad University shows that they are going to be a Team Leader, because for them the people’s needs as well as the results of their work are important.
