If even in Sweden men can’t abide by their spouse’s ambitions, what hope is there for the rest of us?
First, it’s worth dispensing with the misconception that women really have it so great in Sweden.
In their study of career ambitions of MBA women, economists Leonardo Bursztyn, Thomas Fujiwara, and Amanda Pallais use data from a survey of newly enrolled students at an unnamed elite business school, conducted for the purposes of helping with internship placements.
Students were randomly assigned to receive one of two surveys that were identical but for a single word.
Where the American study breaks ground is by showing how women—even ones who have already demonstrated considerable ambition by enrolling at an elite business school—tend to downplay that ambition in public.
The Swedish study, meanwhile, suggests that there are real consequences for ambition—consequences more dire than a modest narrowing of options on the college dating scene.
Founders Hurry Date, small, private company, is considering funding options for future growth, including the total or partial sale of the company.
Students should determine the strategy of the company, the main risks and success factors associated with the industry to assess the basic financial statements, evaluating past performance of the company, the assessment of the future of the company, and give recommendations for the evaluation of the firm.
Switching tactics, she tells her next partner that she’s a stewardess. That was back in 2000, already well past the heyday of the stay-at-home housewife. economists found that single women in an elite MBA program responded to a career survey with lower salary targets and acceptable levels of work travel if they thought their responses might be visible to their classmates.
But social mores are slow to change, and based on some new research from American and Swedish researchers, ambitious and successful women are—to this day—still penalized in the marriage market. In Sweden—a leader in gender-equity policies—a study found that when women take on leadership positions in politics or business, it doubles their chances of divorce.

(Men reported slightly lower salary goals and slightly higher willingness to travel when they thought the information might be fodder for class discussion.) Given the distinct effect of public exposure on single (rather than attached) women, the authors interpret their findings as the result of a desire to appear marriage-ready in the eyes of their male classmates.
