Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Inspirationen till denna studie uppkom av författarnas intresse kring identiteter och deras intresse för skapelseprocessen kring deras egna identiteter. Frågan som uppkom i samband med starten för studien var vilka vi själva har utvecklas till som blivande civilekonomer och vilka faktorer som hade påverkat oss.

Syfte: Studiens syfte var att undersöka skapelse- och förändringsprocessen av en civilekonoms professionsidentitet under studietiden.

Metod: Studien är genomförd på ett kvalitativt tillvägagångssätt. Studien har utförts med en autoetnografisk teknik för att presentera studiens empiri där även författarnas reflektioner presenteras som en empirikälla. Det empiriska materialet samlades in genom sex stycken djupintervjuer med civilekonomstudenter från Linnéuniversitetet i Växjö.

Slutsats: Resultaten av denna studie visar att civilekonomer skapar och tillskriver sin professionsidentitet över tid. Studien visar även att civilekonomers identitetsskapande process påverkas av studenternas förutfattade bild av professionen. Den förutfattade bilden av professionen formas av studenternas significant others.
