Does a satisfied student make a satisfied worker?

Adele Whelan () and Seamus McGuinness ()

No WP561, Papers from Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI)

Abstract: We investigate the effect of satisfaction at higher education on job satisfaction using propensity score matching, the special regressor method and a unique European dataset for graduates. Acknowledging that perceptions of satisfaction at higher education are endogenous to job satisfaction, we present models available to address this endogeneity. Our analysis confirms that a positive university experience is important for success in future employment and suggests that emphasis should be focused on the utility of participating in third-level education along with academic outcomes.
