Graduate supervisors are the first responsible person for graduate cultivation, which means they are responsible for both academic supervision and moral education. While graduate supervisors who are connected to business and industry are better qualified to advise students on their career choices than academic advisors, However, there is limited research on how their moral education guidance and influence is related to students’ career choices during the educational process. The purpose of this study is to better understand the moral-educational guidance of supervisors in relation to graduate students' choice of work location, job category, and industry income. We analyzed longitudinal data on 438 Beijing Institute of Business and Technology graduate work students, and obtained performance questionnaires on moral education and Work & Well-being Survey. A linear regression model by Statistical Product Service Solutions showed that students who receive frequent, smooth and effective contact with their supervisors are more likely to take their career advice. The tutor's honesty, respect, and genuine interest in the student's needs and desires enables the students intuitively find their own career path. Notably, there is a positive, statistically significant relationship between mentor advice on career ethics and the student's career options. Our research also shows that students who have received a good moral education are more likely to be self-motivated and overcome difficulties at work,regardless of work location or salary.
