This article describes the mechanics that can influence social (especially professional) mobility of graduates of private universities and the school's position. It is about the connection of students' sense of social chances with their motivation to act. Contemporary theories of motivation recognize the human being as an active person, not a passive object of influences. An individual is capable of self-control, an active search for information about the surrounding world and autonomous decision-making. These theories also emphasize the essential value of subjective meaning of acting for an individual. We can presume that the sense of social chances will be influencing motivation to act in a sense that it will increase when this sense is high/good and decrease when this sense is low/bad. This article is based on research conducted in May 2006 and 2007 among students of private universities.
