Conference: 2017 CAPSEE Conference: Making the Right Investments in College
Date and Time: April 06, 2017 9:00–10:30 AM
Location: Washington, DC
Venue: Capital Hilton

This plenary session will summarize the labor market returns to college. Panelists will present evidence on returns to bachelor’s and associate degrees, as well as returns to the many sub-baccalaureate awards offered by colleges. Key differences in returns—for example, across awards, subjects, institutions, and student attributes—will be highlighted. This evidence will be examined in light of recent and expected changes in the structure of the labor market.
