Description

This study examines the Predictive Factors that Influence Students’ for the Choice of Secretarial Studies in Tertiary Institutions in Ogun State of Nigeria. The factors investigated included parental, peer group, gender and interest. This is informed by the low enrolment into secretarial education programmes across the Universities and College of Education and the poor attitude of students with regard to their self-worth in spite of the many job opportunities and career satisfaction offered by this all pervasive skill oriented academic programme. The design of the study was descriptive with a stratified sample of 191 Secretarial Studies students randomly selected from public Tertiary Institutions in Ogun State during. A questionnaire was the instrument used to gather data from the field for analysis. Four research questions were raised and answered; while two hypotheses were formulated and tested.The results showed that there were variations in the predictive factors that influence students’ choice of Secretarial Studies between male and female students; and also students from the Universities and College of Education differed significantly with regard to some of the factors that influence their choice. Based on this conclusions were drawn and recommendation made.
