Economics of Education Review, v29 n6 p971-979 Dec 2010
We report evidence that university reputation affects wages of bachelors in China. An unconditional difference between a top-100 university and a top 400-500 university of 23% is increased to some 28% by adding controls. Within the top-100 there is no differentiation in pay-off. Self-rated quality of high school, while affecting quality of university attended, has no effect on earnings. (Contains 8 tables.)
