LiU students are top earners
A new report by the Institute for Labour Market Policy Evaluation (IFAU) confirms the image of LiU as a university whose graduates easily find jobs and are among the top earners.
Does it matter for future earnings where a degree has been gained? And to what extent are any differences a result of differing degree offerings, and is it a question of gender or social background amongst the students?
Marie Gartell, economist at Stockholm University, undertook the study on behalf of IFAU and looked at every student who graduated during the 1990s. She used a variety of methods to determine if each method led to a different outcome. The report concludes that different comparison tools led to slightly varied results, however these differences were minor and the same few universities ended up top, independent of method used. LiU along with Uppsala University, Lund University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Chalmers University of Technology were the top performers in the study.
