The Effects of Employment on Time-to-Degree in Higher Education: Does the type of Employment matter?
AbstractIn this paper I scrutinize the impact of employment on time-to-degree in Higher Education. In contrast to the previous literature, I look at different types of working while being enrolled at university. Using the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP), I find that full-time employment and part-time employment significantly decreases the probability of graduating from university at any point of enrollment.
