The Role of Higher Education Skills and Support in Graduate Self-Employment
Greene, Francis J.; Saridakis, George
Studies in Higher Education, v33 n6 p653-672 Dec 2008
This article examines the career progression of self-employed graduates immediately following graduation and four years subsequently. Using a career socialization theory specific to entrepreneurial settings, it links the role of skills acquired in UK higher education courses and the use of support with self-employment outcomes. Using a wide range of controls (e.g. individual background, prior education, career orientations), the article finds that higher education is initially important in supporting graduate self-employment, but that this support decays in value. (Contains 6 tables.)
