Performance accademica e scelta della facoltà universitaria: aspetti teorici e evidenza empirica

  • Massimiliano Bratti
  • Stefano Staffolani

In questo articolo vengono analizzati i fattori che influenzano l’impegno di studio, e conseguentemente la performance degli studenti iscritti all’universit` a e quelli che spingono gli studenti a indirizzarsi verso uno specifico corso di laurea (facolt`a). In particolare, un modello teorico definisce le grandezze che incidono sull’impegno profuso durante gli studi universitari e il livello di utilit`a massima attesa che ogni studente presume di ottenere da ognuna delle lauree. L’applicazione empirica presentata mette in luce come il background familiare, i caratteri del percorso formativo pre-universitario, l’abilit`a degli individui e le aspettative di voto incidano sia sulla scelta dell’indirizzo di studio che sulla performance universitaria. Emerge che, anche se i fattori forward looking sono importanti, l’esistenza di fattori inerziali pu`o portare ad una scarsa sensibilit`a delle iscrizioni ai diversi corsi di laurea rispetto alle condizioni del mercato del lavoro dei laureati.
