Graduates of the FernUniversitat.
Bartels, Jorn
This survey of economics graduates at the FernUniversitat found that relatively few students who enroll in the program pass the final exam. Full-time students have better graduation rates than part-time students, although the FernUniversitat considers the latter as its main target group. Full-time students on the average require the same number of semesters to earn a degree as students at conventional universities. On the average, part-time students require only three semesters more to complete their studies. With regard to study goals, the economics graduates attached greater importance to self-development than to obtaining better professional qualifications. The unemployment rate of the male graduates is extremely low (3%), but the female graduates have significantly more problems finding a first job. Their rate of unemployment is 19%. Two out of three of the graduates (female more often than male) improved their job positions after graduating from the FernUniversitat. (10 references) (Author/GL)
