Great expectations? - Enterprises´ expectations about graduate education in the field of management: Evidence from Slovenia
AbstractAs a response to the emerging trend of greater enrolment in graduate programmes in Slovenia, this paper assesses the role of higher education (i.e. specifically in the management field) in Slovenian enterprises. The research includes representatives from 80 enterprises and 160 graduate students. It is believed that knowledge and other individual’s capabilities obtained in the process of formal education are utilized in companies. However, the opposing belief among students that enterprises do not seek candidates with graduate degrees emphasizes the importance of a deeper investigation of the subject. Research data show that graduate education can be seen not only as an advantage but also as a disadvantage.
