Abstract

The goal of this work is to explore the effects of various factors that affect the employment
of graduates of the University of Zenica. Additional analysis of variables
as well as the links between variables will offer the input information that can contribute
to the decision-making process in the development of new curriculums. The survey
was conducted in Zenica-Doboj Canton, which involved n = 47 respondents. To
process data, the following programs were used: Microsoft Excel, SPSS and SmartPL
S3 - SEM program. The verification of the validity and the reliability of the measuring
scale was carried out by calculating the Cronbach's Alpha coefficient. The
review of the set of the hypotheses was carried out by the Regression analysis. The
findings revealed that three hypotheses were accepted and one of them was rejected.
The set hypotheses confirmed that the adopted expertise of graduates, the level of
acquired skills and cooperation of the University with companies has a statistically
significant impact on the employability of graduates. The organizational skills of
graduates do not have a statistically significant impact on the employability of the
University of Zenica graduates.
