Professional Identity: The Concept and Formation

Alkhidir, Abbas (2021) Professional Identity: The Concept and Formation. Business Educator: Working Paper Series of the Centre for Management Learning and Business Education, 1. pp. 79-89.

Item Type: Article


In spite of the frequent use of the term Professional Identity, it is hardly differentiated from other related concepts such as work attitudes, professional behaviour and professionalism.
Accordingly, this paper will represent an attempt to: (1) identify different definitions and attempt/ to conceptualise the terms, (2) to explore how professional identity is shaped by work attitudes, behaviour and beliefs etc. (3) to examine the formation of professional identity in relation to personal, social and cultural influences.
