Quality disclosures in higher education institutions
Bridging the gap between quality of education and labour outcomes in emerging economies
There is a prevalent school of thought that links higher education to social mobility. While some evidence from countries such as Denmark supports this thinking, there is scant (and mixed) evidence from developing countries, such as Brazil, Chile and Ecuador; suggesting that higher education may be a less powerful causal factor in social mobility mechanism in societies with high inequality and weak institutions. The research team studies how mandatory disclosures concerning quality in higher education impact degree choices, quality of degree programmes, employment outcomes and general levels of inequity.
