The purpose of the paper is to analyze the graduates’ insertion in the labor market in the context of the new economic changes and to reveal the relationship between education and their employability. This paper will focus attention on the role of formal higher education; particularly in Business and Administration graduates. The study will be based on a survey achieved through a qualitative research by the implementation of a questionnaire among a representative segment of graduates. It should be noted that this paper focuses on formal education as a mean of human capital accumulation. In the scientific literature there are studies recognized on both specialists and institutions level according to which education is the principal source of economic growth. The role of education consists in transmitting skills and aptitudes towards flexibility. This marks the entry in the new economy or knowledge society, in which competitiveness depends on skills and human capital possessed. Moreover, education is important not only for future productive capacity building but also for improving living standards. A better educated person will have more chances to get a better paying job and have more freedom to choose and decide what is best for his state of wealth. That person will also have the financial resources to take care of his health and access superior products and services.
