Laura Ehrmantraut, Pia Pinger, and Renske Stans: “The Expected (Signaling) Value of Higher Education” This paper presents first evidence on expected returns to completing higher education. We make use of survey data that comprise counterfactual information on expected labor market outcomes for different educational scenarios among a large and diverse sample of students. These data allow us to estimate the expected lifetime return to completing higher education as well as the perceived internal rate of return. Moreover, we study the perceived value of signaling in higher education, by investigating the expected returns to completing tertiary education among students who are very close to graduating. Lastly, we examine the perceived probability to drop out in relation to our previous findings. In doing so, we are able to confirm the importance of perceived returns for educational decision making by relating the expected returns to stated dropout probabilities.
