    Abstract

    Our study contributes to the literature about societal culture dimensions, as reflected by the perceptions and expectations of students and present managers. We find some similarities but also statistically significant differences between students and middle managers in Romania in terms of their perception on nine societal culture practices as well as their expectations about societal culture values. The research sample consists of 427 undergraduate and graduate students in engineering and business and 216 middle managers. Our results show similarities in perceptions of society’s future orientation, institutional collectivism and assertiveness and significant differences in perception of the other six cultural practices. Similarities in expectations (values) were also noted concerning gender egalitarianism and assertiveness.
