Abstract

This paper characterizes variations in the expected employment of university graduates after a reform of the Italian University system that caused an increase in tertiary education attendance and a reduction in dropout rates, modifying the length of degrees and course contents. In a survey of employers’ hiring intentions which elicits information about occupations open to university graduates, it finds that employers mainly substituted less educated workers with more educated ones within clerical and technical occupations.
