Choix d'orientation et rentabilité de l'enseignement supérieur: une application micro économique à partir du modèle de scolarité de Mincer
AbstractOne of the determining factors in the choice of studies is the return associated with these studies. If the continuation of studies in higher education generally constitutes a profitable decision in financial terms, this profitability varies according to the curriculum or to individual characteristics. According to the human capital theory, education involves an investment which allows the increase of the productivity of those which profit from it, and implies an increase in their earnings. The aim of this paper is to analyze the educational outputs of various university sectors, estimating, according to Mincer’s model of schooling, the private rate of return of education associated with the diploma obtained in the higher education system.
