The objective of this study is to examine the impact of attitude towards money on career goals. The sample consists of undergraduate students and the data are examined using mean differences and multiple linear regression model. The main findings show that women tend to see money as a symbol of power and prestige. The findings also denote that women are more economy-minded, and are more prone to financial planning than men. The proponents of money as the symbol of power and prestige and those with more intense monetary concerns attach great importance to having high salaries in their profession.
