Akkas, Emine; Ayhan, Mustafa Batuhan
Participatory Educational Research, v5 n2 p38-50 Dec 2018
Profession selection is one of the most important decisions for human beings. Since the professions can generally be achieved via higher education, determining the most proper higher education becomes an important decision problem. In order to select the best higher education program, there are various criteria to be considered. Hence the main purpose of this study is to provide an analytical analysis of thirty three criteria under the heading of three main criteria for higher education selection. Then a case study was performed to find the relative weights and ranking of these main and sub criteria at a high school for different grade students. Depending on the comparison of weights and rankings of different grade students, it was inferred that according to their age and different grades, the students' preferences change during their adolescence period regarding the higher education selection. This study can be enhanced by applying multi criteria decision making techniques such as, Analytical Hierarchy Process, to calculate the weights of the main and sub criteria more analytically in the further steps.
