Do Better Grades in PSE Lead to Better Labour Market Outcomes?

This project examines the link between students' PSE grades and labour market outcomes. It builds on the ongoing EPRI-ESDC Tax-Linkage Project. The study examines if, and to what degree, different levels of skills and mastery at the PSE level, as captured by graduates' final grade point average (GPA), are rewarded in the labour market. The study is funded by the Ontario Human Capital Research and Innovation Fund.
