Asian Institute of Management Working Paper No. 13-001 : Education Choices and Migration Prospects among Youth in the Philippines

This paper provides a preliminary investigation of the education, migration, and employment preferences of the youth. It employs primary data consisting of the responses of 280 high school students to a specialized survey instrument. The paper places particular emphasis on identifying and measuring the impact of familial and social networks on the prospective education and migration decisions of the youth. The data suggest that a markedly smaller proportion of the youth are inclined to pursue courses in the hard sciences as compared to more popular courses such as engineering, accountancy, business, and economics. The results gleaned from the data suggest that there could be a gender bias in prospective migration. The results also suggest that familial networks strongly influence the sentiments of the youth towards migration.
