About the Lecture:
This paper examines the effect of a ICT implementation program on college students’initial labor market performance. Exploiting the largest and most representative survey for college students, we adopt a difference-in-difference strategy to deal with the endogeneity problem. The results provide some evidence that the ICT implementation program has positive impact on students’wage for their first job in career. The program are found to has no impact on their academic achievements in college. While the program significantly improves students’skills in using computer and interest in study, it also increases their time allocated in entertainment, including computer games and other entertainments and reduces the time allocated to study and internship.
