The purpose of this study was to determine management potential of students. In this case the students are future, not only professionals, but managers as well, both within their professional domains and wider in the society. Social relations are established on the basis of relations between individuals in compliance with their goals and interests. Therefore, the initial survey collected the indicators that showed the degree of individual management potential. After that these indicators were placed in relations, which, after factor analysis, resulted in obtaining the final set of management mechanisms. Four mechanisms were recorded, i.e. four global modes of student’s actions within the area of resource management and identified as: leadership, management, opportunism and delegation. Organizing companies, schools, governing bodies, corporations, etc., in order to achieve efficiency is inevitably followed by some general patterns of structuring and management. It is obvious that the results of this study can significantly improve many aspects of planning, design and implementation of organizational models. Recognition of mechanisms isolated in this study provides us with the option to timely select appropriate experts as regards their positioning in the right jobs and tasks, which is a valuable find as far as sociology is concerned. The existence of latent mechanisms of management potential in students was experimentally proven precisely because of the relevance of the fact that they are the most immediate future managers. The research was carried out in 10 different areas of three states with students from different faculties; however, the research results should be checked after the 10-year period in order to identify any changes caused by the general social processes that will eventually follow.
