Labour market inequality among higher professional education graduates

HBO Monitor: women increasingly disadvantaged

Maastricht University's Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA) published a new report today based on the HBO Monitor, an annual alumni survey. What makes this survey so unique is that it makes graduate comparisons one year, four years and eight years after graduation. In other words, it compares data from the same graduates over a longer period. The good news is that social background no longer plays a role on the labour market after obtaining a higher professional education degree. The bad news is that the position of female graduates worsens a year after graduating.
