Description This paper is concerned with the analysis of level of aspiration of students for position in management, level of aspiration is evaluated from gender perspective. Attention is paid to relation of level of aspiration and gender stereotypes in management. The research was conducted on the sample of 111 respondents who were students of psychology and corporate business. Research data were obtained by administration of translated and adapted questionnaires by B. Litzky (Managerial Position Aspiration Scale) and L. Peters (Women as Managers Scale). The results showed a relation between lower managerial position aspiration level of women and gender stereotypes shared in the society. Stereotypes can be one of the causes of lower aspiration of women on managerial positions and their relatively lower representation in such positions. Relatively lower representation of women in managerial positions can be percieved as a social problem with serious consequence on effectivity of human resources management. Knowledge of causes of this phenomenon is prerequisite for effective intervention.
