Карьерные траектории бизнес-элиты : объективное и субъективное измерения
In this chapter, we will look at the subjective and objective aspects of educational and professional trajectories in the careers of the leaders of large corporations as representatives of the management elite. At the conceptual level, here we operate with a number of concepts - life path, career trajectory, transitions, turning points, as well as in the subjective aspect of social mobility - the dynamics of status identity as a delegated social actor to narrativize the subjectively important turning points of the educational and professional trajectory. In empirical terms, we involve both the narrative, the origin of which is in the biographical interview, and the respondent’s publicly disclosed data in the form of several summaries reflecting the mobility of his status identity. In addition, the empirical summary array of CEOs of large corporations on the subject of the obtained qualification level for the head of the company, the time spent on the upward trajectory of a representative of the management elite, the differences associated with generational cohorts, as well as the specifics of social and professional mobility from previous professional groups.
