The book provides the first available evidence on new trends of the Italian graduates in Business Economics, based on the AlmaLaurea data. The main purpose of the research is to investigate the educational and occupational experiencesof the graduates in Business Economics, to then explore their employability. The first research question is addressed by using a large sample of the target population. The second research question is answered by a logistic regression analysis. Among various findings, the volume sheds light on some problems concerning the effectiveness of the first-cycle degree in Business Economics, due to the difficulty stated by many interviewees regarding the limiteduse of skills acquired during university studies in their current jobs. The mismatch between education and occupation could explain the high percentage of the people who, among the first-cycle graduates in Business Economics, decide to continue their studies. Accordingly, the bookidentifies some policy challenges for university decision makers to improve the chance that a degree in Business Economics could result in high-quality employment. In this perspective, the integrated thinking, holistic view and ethical approach of Gino Zappa embody a meaningful heritage that should be safeguarded, by carrying on his fundamental commitment in pragmatic science, effective education and international openness.
