ABSTRACT

Students are the future of the country. They are the people who would be joining the corporate world very soon. Hence it becomes imperative for the Managers to understand the mindset of the younger generation to help them become effective for organizational change. The current study focuses on Locus of Control and the difference in it among different variables such as course of study, Science, and Arts, among Higher Secondary School students (HSc.) and college students. It is a promising area of inquiry and a critical context for studying personality. The study was conducted on 90 students studying in HSc. and University/ College of some of the cities of Gujarat. The survey was conducted by using Levenson’s Locus of Control Scale (1981). It was found out that Millennial females scored more on ‘Individual Control’ compared to the other two variables i.e. Powerful Others and Chance Control describing that Millennial Females can effectively control most of the situations on their own.
