Transcript Changing Social Values The College of Business, like many business programs throughout the nation, Is experiencing record numbers of female students graduating in undergraduate and graduate programs. According to recent statistics, 51 percent of the 1987 graduating class that received bachelor's degrees in business administration were women, compared to 42 percent in 1982. Furthermore, 70 percent of the 1987 BBA honor graduates were women. Of those receiving degrees in accounting, 57 percent were women compared to 43 percent in 1982. Additionally, 45 percent of the total graduates receiving Ph.D.'s were women contrasted to 9 percent in 1982. "The opportunities for women in business are a great deal better than 10 years ago," said Debi Loff Gomez, a 1986 honors graduate of the College of Business. Some faculty, administrators and graduates say the increase of women in business related majors and careers is partly due to changing social values and greater job opportunities. Unlike some faculty, Sandra Frieden, Chair of the Committee on the Status of Women, says she is not surprised by the increases of women in the business school. Frieden said the College of Business should be credited in encouraging the recruitment, retention and graduation of women in business fields. Some colleges discourage women. The increase in numbers of women is a reflection of mind-set and values of the college's administration," she said. Frieden also said growing feminist ideas have promoted career opportunities for women in business. However, social fears of traditionally male-dominated fields (such as business), becoming female-oriented are evident. "There is always danger of the 'feminization" of professions. The education field is a prime example. With this process comes less respect and less pay. But this is a social hangup that our society will gradually shake off," she said. Cynthia Simmons, a teaching fellow in accounting, said more women are succeeding in business fields by assuming traditional masculine roles in the work force. "Women no longer want to be nurses or teachers with little or no status," Simmons said. "In order to be pioneers the women have had to play a masculine game." Simmons said there is often more motivation for older women to succeed in school, yet they are confronted with a burdensome dilemma once they enter the work force. "It's hard for women. They usually have children, may be experiencing a divorce and need more money so they can return to school," she said. — Joy Sewing Walker, Leslie Ann Watktns, Jonelyn B. Weber.
