Does the Institutional Type Matter?: Slovak Higher Education on Its Way to Diversity
Caplanova, Anetta
Tertiary Education and Management, v9 n4 p317-340 Dec 2003
The paper focuses on the issue of the development of new institutional types in Slovak higher education. It is based on the empirical research conducted in 2001 among the sample of university graduates in Slovakia. The main focus of the paper is the comparison of public, non-state and private higher education with respect to their background, academic experience and first labour market experience after graduation. The discussion of these issues has shown that the road of Slovakia to an institutionally diversified higher education system is still at its early stages. However, graduates from existing private higher education institutions are competitive on the labour market, and the same is true for graduates from non-state (church) higher education. The results of the study can be used as an argument in favour of further diversification of institutional types in the context of Slovak higher education.
