top Leah days for junior execs v By CHRISTINA KIRK New York Herald Tribune News Service NEW YORK Those bonus babies of the business world the management trainees have come upon leaner days In the boom years of the 1950 when expanding companies were beating the bush for executive talent bright young men with crisp new business administration diplomas were wooed and won with promises of a quick well paid ride to the top of the corpor ate superstructure Given the status title manage ment trainee they were set upon a twoyear course in executive development a few weeks in sales a brief stint in production a month or so in personnel anc finance with perhaps a universitj course in the humanities thrown in for seasoning At the end of their apprentice ship the new recruits were ex pected to take over the middle management job that would propel them unerringly to the upper echelons Atleast that was thetheory Today costconscious business men are the theory really works and other observers are questioning if it was ever really tried Management trainee programs are a misleading myth charges Lawrence Lansner placemen director of the Bernard Baruch School of Business Although they may hang glamour title on the job to attrac men who like to think of them selves as management people Lansner observes that what the companies really are after are good engineers accountants anc salesmen

enrblle in onthejob business trainin programs Nobody is promised a man sgers job says a GE spokes man Some of them do mov up of course But theres none o this Crown Prince The trend today seems to be to allow future managers to evolv out of their own special field o endeavor At American Cynamid Co fo example where 80 per cent of th top executives are chemists o chemical engineers managemen people grow from beginning job in researchmanufacturing o sales They must first prove com petency in their specialty befor being tapped for an executiv berth Many firms notably Procter J Gamble Co and Scott Paper Co still comb the campuses for youn men with executive potential pu them through the standard one o twoyear management trainee pro gram and graduate them to ex ecutive jobs The director of one such pro gram admitted that managemen training programs are ove rated and that some companie are disillusioned because the have sold themselves on some thing they dont need Another placement director
