Gender Differences on Current Employment Status
MIS Graduates－Taking a University as an Example
This study was designed to probe the gender differences among academic performance and current employment status for MIS graduates of a National University of Science and Technology. The results show that, first of all, 84.9% of male MIS graduates currently own a job relate to their college major, significantly higher than females’ 61.6%. In addition, male MIS graduates have higher salary and higher job positions than females. However, female MIS graduates earned better grade in college level than their male counterparts. Much over, more female than male were found to quit their jobs because they no more interested in working at the MIS field. Female MIS graduates held more local professional certificates but had significant less global recognized certificates than males, while MIS graduates with more global recognized certificates in hands tend to have higher salary.
