Graduates monitoring project

WU’s gradu­ate mon­it­or­ing pro­ject is in­ten­ded to help gather more in­form­a­tion on gradu­ates’ in­teg­ra­tion and per­form­ance on the labor mar­ket. The pro­ject is a co­oper­a­tion between WU's Pro­gram Man­age­ment and Teach­ing and Learn­ing Sup­port unit and the In­sti­tute for Ad­vanced Stud­ies in Vi­enna.

Gradu­ates’ data is linked to the labor mar­ket data­base (Fed­eral Min­istry of Labor, So­cial Af­fairs and Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion). This data­base in­cludes the so­cial se­cur­ity data of all em­ploy­ees in Aus­tria, there­fore provid­ing an abund­ance of rel­ev­ant, highly ac­cur­ate in­form­a­tion on the Aus­trian labor mar­ket.

The pro­ject ana­lyzes gradu­ates’ data on an ag­greg­ate level for all WU gradu­ates as well as on the in­di­vidual pro­gram level. Res­ults in­clude the type of em­ploy­ment con­tract, ma­jor in­dus­tries gradu­ates are em­ployed in, and in­come data.
