Modern, global labour market requires a lot of skills and experience from employees. The young generation of V4 countries is the first generation whose reality is based on the laws of world capitalism. The paper discusses of students attitudes towards work, especially towards working abroad on a global labour market. The paper first presents the concept of attitudes, specially attitudes towards work. An analysis was carried out on the basis of empirical research, with the use of auditorium survey, within the framework of the Visegrad Standard Grant. The empirical research referred to in the text was conducted using the audit survey method at universities of four Visegrad countries - in Katowice (Poland), Nitra (Slovakia), Olomouc and Ostrava (Czech Republic) and Godollo (Hungary). In the paper three components attitudes toward work: cognitive, affective and behavioral will be analyzed. During the empirical analysis following questions will be answered: What is the students’ knowledge about getting a job? What is the value of work in their lives? Are they going to emigrate abroad to look for a job and face global labour market? The conclusion will contain definitions of three types of students’ attitude towards working on the global labour market (coherent, ambivalent and incoherent).
