Return on education of a study programme

Is it worthwhile investing in the course of study in the form of tuition fees from a financial point of view as well, i.e. in view of the income to be expected after graduation?

In this study, DIW Econ examined the return on investment in education that results from investing in the course of study at Jacobs University compared to studying at a public university in Germany.

The aim was to compare the costs and returns of different study decisions in a methodologically sound framework in order to identify possible differences in the expected returns to education.
