Abstract [en]

The purpose with this essay is to examine different roles of leadership in the working environment by interviewing ex-students that have taken their degree from Halmstad Högskola and its construction program. How do these ex-students handle to be in a position of power in their everday life and how do they handle decision making? Do they find that the education they have recieved in any way has helped them in regard for leadership or do they rather conclude that further education in the area of leadership would be beneficial? These are the questions that I set out to shed some light over in this essay. This study consists of one part theory and one empirical part. The empirical part was accomplished by interviewing ex-students from Halmstad Högskola and this part was later compiled with relevant theories on the subject which were obtained from books , internet and various databases.

The results from the interviews show that the general point of view is that the subjects containing leadership in their education hasn't really helped them. The results also show that these courses could be improved by introducing more work-related aspects in school. On the question that deals with decision making and how one handles to be in a position of power the general interpretation is that this is role that one grows into in time.
