TO STUDY AND TO WORK ABROAD OR AT HOME? THAT IS THE QUESTION
Purpose - The aim of this paper is to identify the most wanted universities and future jobs for Romanian students and to analyze the rationality of studying and working abroad or at home.
Design/Methodology/Approach Quantitative methods: questionnaires. 600 questionnaires were administrated in the most developed and one of the most deprived region from Romania. The cluster method was used to reveal the main reasons to study and to work abroad or at home.
Findings The main reasons to study and to work abroad are better wages and a better society and the main reasons to study and to work at home are a higher level of comfort, as well as being close to their families and friends. Most of the respondents would like to work abroad, even if they prefer first to finish their studies at home.
Practical implications A match between the chosen university and the future job in three areas: Medicine, IT and Business was found.
Originality/Value The study offers an insight on Romanian students perceptions in rationality of study and work abroad or at home. 71% of the students who would like to study abroad would like to work abroad and only 35% of those who would like to study at home would like to work at home too.
Limitations The questionnaires were administrated only in the richest and in the poorest part of Romania. Future research should be conducted including other regions
