Impact evaluation on employability and social mobility for an educative model implemented in Mexico

Client: International Finance Corporation

During 2014 and 2015, C230 Consultores evaluated the impact of the Mexican higher education programs enrolled into Laureate International Universities’ education model in the social mobility, employability, and professional development of its graduates.

This was an ex-post impact evaluation. It was planned and implemented years after the individuals participating in this study enrolled and graduated from college, cancelling the possibility of having baseline information available. The study relied on data collected directly from the field, including a college graduate’s survey, an employer’s survey and in-depth interviews to Laureate former students. The analysis was based on a quasi-experimental approach, complemented with descriptive statistics and qualitative information. As part of the field work, 20 graduates from the Mexican universities that apply the Laureate International Universities’ model were interviewed. 1,000 businesses were contacted in search of the graduates’ employers’ opinions. Also 10,000 phone calls to graduates were made.

The final report of this evaluation is available here.
