PRATES, Antônio Augusto Pereira; SILVA, Matheus Faleiros and PAULA, Túlio Silva de. Natureza administrativa das instituições de Ensino Superior, gestão organizacional e o acesso aos postos de trabalho de maior prestígio no mercado de trabalho. Soc. estado.

This article discusses the effect of the relationship between types of organizational management of institutions of higher education and its effects on the performance of their graduates in the labor market, in terms of access to positions of higher occupational prestige (PRATES, 2007; 2010). The article brings together two independent studies on this issue. The first one is a case study, conducted in 2008, with faculty members of private institutions of higher education and with faculty members of a public university, the EACH (USP-Leste). The second is a quantitative study, conducted in 2011, with data from the PNAD 2007 with the purpose of testing, through linear regression models, whether either the type of institution - public or private, or/and the type of course, baccalaureate or technological - affects student performance in terms of unequal access to jobs with higher prestige in the labor market. The main conclusion, though not a definitive one, is that the Prates' hypothesis (2007; 2010) is a plausible one, namely that the institutional environment generated by the type of internal organizational management of the institution of higher education affects the level of student performance for getting the jobs of higher occupational prestige in the labor market.
