Number of participants: 11,151
Number of universities targeted: 48 leading universities
Number of employer evaluations: 37,332
Field period: October 2013 to March 2014

“Generation Y has a strong desire for employability, i. e. the ability to find employment based on one’s own competencies, because of their safety-mindedness. Members of this generation have realized that they can develop their competencies only with continuing education and development by an inspiring management.”
