This paper looks at non business (n = 66) and business graduates (n = 18) and compares their employment preference in Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SME) or Large Enterprises (LE). In pursuit, a questionnaire was developed measuring the perception of graduates as regards on the content of a job, compensation (and job security) and the company (and the work location). The questionnaire was administered during the Career Days (non-business students) and during a course on SME issues (business students). The general perception of the conditions of a job was seen as more favorable in SMEs.
