Abstract

Futuretrack data are used to evaluate the future wage returns to skills acquisition while at university. A series of matching estimators and an inverse probability weighted regression adjustment (IPWRA) allow identification of the causal effect. It is found that graduates’ use of skills at work is influenced by their having received training in these skills while at university, and that the wage returns to many of these skills is positive.
