Abstract

The needs of sharia-based higher education is now an urgency in Islamic financial institusions in Indonesia. This study examines whether social cognitive career theory (SCCT) and religiosity affect career preference of students of sharia finance and economics program. The SCCT covers 1) intrinsic/self motivation, 2) extrinsic motivation (work place, salary and respect of sharia expert), 3) third party influence (family, friends, teachers, media, supervisor and environment), 4) career awareness. Religiosity describes how deep the students understand their religion. Using stuctural equation modeling (SEM) for 325 observation of sharia finance and economics students, the test finds that intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, and third-party influences significantly affect career preference, while career exposure and religiosity do not. It implies that sharia related education institution should maintain motivation of students and good influence of environment towards the students’ motivation to have career in Islamic institutions. Introducint career and job as well as topics to strengthen their knowledge in sharia are also imporant to motivate students.
