Abstract:

This article verifies empirically differences in salaries and employment security across 140 thousand graduates of 231 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Poland. HEIs according to the clustering procedure, results were grouped into four clusters: "Underdogs", "Middlers", "Aspirants", and "Winners". Then, a contingency analysis was done, which proved dependence between belongingness to cluster and: localization (weak dependence), profile of HEIs’ graduate curricula (medium), as well as ownership type (strong). Discussion of the results and conclusions are presented.
