National HRD and Investment in Human Capital: Opportunity Costs of U.S. Postsecondary Education
Cornachione, Edgard; Daugherty, Jenny
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
This study explores opportunity costs of postsecondary education in the U.S. in the past three decades. Based on human capital theory, data from the U.S. Census, along with parameters for high education achievement (involving bachelors and advanced degrees), were fed into a forecasting model developed for this purpose. Beyond descriptive statistics on the opportunity costs for bachelors or advanced degrees, findings on gender differences are discussed in light of the National HRD (human resource development) framework. (Contains 4 figures and 2 tables.)
