Petzold, Knut – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
By virtue of the internationalisation of economies, international student mobility is considered increasingly important for professional careers. However, most studies focus on the supply-side by using graduate surveys, which face problems of graduates' self-selection. Other studies on employers' opinions often lack rigour analysis and report…

Tanggaard, Lene; Wegener, Charlotte – Journal of Education and Work, 2016
Based on two empirical studies on education in health and elderly care, this paper reflects on the possible role of "old ideas" involved in creative innovation.

Landry, Lynette; Neubauer, Deane – Journal of Education and Work, 2016
The overall financial structure of US higher education has changed dramatically over the past 30 years, resulting in a significant reduction of public funding.

d'Aguiar, Steve; Harrison, Neil – Journal of Education and Work, 2016
It has been argued by some (e.g. the Confederation of British Industry [CBI]) that graduates lack the skills that render them employable. In particular, graduates of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects are often portrayed as being unready for the world of work. This study uses three large-scale national data-sets from…

Ashton, Heidi S.; Ashton, David N. – Journal of Education and Work, 2016
Our understanding of the transition from school to work has traditionally been underpinned by a three-stage model. This is one in which the first stage is a preparatory one, where the focus is on school, followed by a second transition stage and ending in a third stage, the successful entry to work. This is a model that has been challenged by work…

To illustrate the value of the approach, we focus on an…
