Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between life stress and superstitious beliefs. A total of twenty-five graduate students in MBA program at a selected public university was gathered for data collection through a questionnaire. The results of simple linear regression indicated that life stress could explain 32.7% of variance to superstitious beliefs of graduate students in MBA program (F(1, 25) = 11.193, p < .003). All in all, the greater life stress level of graduate students had, the more likely they engaged in superstitious beliefs. This indicated that graduate students searched for the external control over outcomes of their lives when they experienced the stressful situations. Limitations and recommendations for further

studies were also discussed.
