BURGOS FLORES, Benjamín. Sobreeducación y desfase de conocimientos en el mercado laboral de profesionistas. Rev. educ. sup [online]. 2008, vol.37, n.148, pp.57-68. ISSN 0185-2760.

Several studies made in different countries showed that an important number of graduated students from higher education, work in places where they do not need an university degree or do not use the knowledge and skills acquired. With this work we want to make a contribution to the labor market of graduated students in Mexico, starting with information achieved by surveys made on graduated students, and their employers, from a public state university. Based on econometric analysis, the evidence shows the existence of a phenomena called an overdose of education plus a lack of coordination between knowledge and its negative effects on wages thus validating the theory of the heterogeneous knowledge.

Keywords : higher education; graduated students; labor market.
