Grütter, Max (2005). Returns to Foreign Education. Yet another but different cross country analysis. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 246, University of Zurich.

Abstract

The main interest of this paper is to compare the value of education systems of differentncountries. For this reason I use data on workers who have completed their education beforenimmigrating to Switzerland to estimate a country specific return to education. I estimatenthe standard Mincer-equation with the extension that I additionally allow for country specific returns to education. Results show that there are important differences between the returns to different education systems within Switzerland in the value of the basic education on the one hand and the return to an additional year of education on the other hand.
