Higher education and work: towards the construction of an information system on college graduates

José Navarro Cendejas


Abstract: The linkage between higher education and the world of work in Mexico is an issue that often leads to controversy, usually because of erroneous conceptions of the role played by education in the sphere of labor, but mostly due to insufficient information on the results achieved by college graduates in the labor market. In this context, this paper discusses the consequences of the lack of systematic and comparable information on the graduates’ insertion into the labor market, and identifies some of the challenges faced in building an information system that contributes to the establishment and evaluation of public policies for higher education. Key words: higher education, graduate follow-up, labor market, public policies.
