In the context of a reflection on the changes in relations between individuals and their jobs, this thesis addresses the international mobility of professional post-graduate students. We focus on their behavior prior to departure, studying the factors from their perspective. Our research suggests that their mobility does not depend solely on economic and financial variables. The position’s potential value and the required investment to ensure a successful career have a greater influence on the determination of the intention. Social norms also play a role. This study is based on the Theory of Planned Behavior, our operating strategy is inspired by Churchill’s paradigm. The methods used are factorial analysis and structural equations. The theoretical contribution of this research is the testing and enhancing of the TPB model on a population of students about to make career choices. The practical contribution is to offer firms keys to the understanding of their future managers’ vision facilitating the adoption of new practices with the aim of attracting students before they make the decision to leave.
