International Journal of Public Administration. 2018. Vol. 41. No. 1. P. 72-82.
Nezhina T. G., Zaytseva T. V.

This study concerns the determinants of Russian MPA students’ work preference. The authors explore the relationship between the image of a civil servant, the pre-employment work expectations, and the MPA students’ intentions to work for government. The data are collected from four Russian universities by surveying 203 MPA students. The authors factor analyzed the descriptors of the civil servant image and the work expectations and applied logistic regression analysis to predict the probability of the MPA students’ choice of public employment.
