Employment rate of graduates in Italy is examined. Rate for Bachelors is lower than for Master graduates, but the difference is small. As 60% Bachelor graduates enrol immediately in a Master programme, many of them being at the same time at work, we looked separately at Bachelors not enrolled in a Master programme. It turns out that in this case the employment rate is quite high. However, employers often remark that university graduates (with Bachelor as well as with Master degree) are well prepared in their disciplines, but lack general competences. By analysing the responses to a questionnaire sent to heads of university programmes, we investigated the general competences indicated as learning outcomes in the curricula offered by Italian universities. Some of the results are presented.

Abstract

Employment rate of graduates in Italy is examined. Rate for Bachelors is lower than for Master graduates, but the difference is small. As 60% Bachelor graduates enrol immediately in a Master programme, many of them being at the same time at work, we looked separately at Bachelors not enrolled in a Master programme. It turns out that in this case the employment rate is quite high. However, employers often remark that university graduates (with Bachelor as well as with Master degree) are well prepared in their disciplines, but lack general competences. By analysing the responses to a questionnaire sent to heads of university programmes, we investigated the general competences indicated as learning outcomes in the curricula offered by Italian universities. Some of the results are presented.
