ABSTRACT. This research examines the relationship between sex role stereotypes and characteristics perceived as necessary for management success among public management students at a small southern public university. As with previous extant studies, three forms of the 92-item Schein Descriptive Index were used to define sex role stereotypes and characteristics of successful managers. The results indicate that male public management students perceive that successful middle managers possess characteristics more commonly projected onto men in general than women in general. The results for females were statistically insignificant, indicating that, at least for this sample, female public management students are not, in general, sex typing the managerial position. pp. 127–132
