Abstract

The career success of 147 doctorates from two schools of social work was assessed using six criteria based on faculty views. Preentry and school performance variables were used to predict the graduates' scores on the success measures. At one university, the most recent graduates were most successful; and at the other, the earliest graduates. At both schools, a shorter time to graduation and a younger age were associated with some aspects of success. Two major dimensions that undergirded the criteria focused on knowledge development and professional leadership. Implications for other social work doctoral programs are discussed.
