The objective of this comparative design study is to determine the differences in jobs expectations between students from Public and Private Universities in Peru, the participants were 400 students of the professional careers of Education and Psychology of two Public Universities and two Private Universities of Lima and Huánuco, chosen through a non-probabilistic sampling. The Labor Expectations Questionnaire based on Bandura’s cognitive-social approach, which were validated and determined the reliability of 0.89, were used as an information collection tool. The results allow us to conclude that there are significant differences in work expectations, between both samples, where public university students presented an average of 28.03, unlike private university students with an average of 22.98, with effect size large according to Cohen’s d of 1.22 (95% CI: 1.00-1.43). When analyzing social and personal expectations, students from public universities score higher than students from private universities, finding statistically significant differences, however, we can observe that there are no significant differences in material expectations.
