dc.description.abstract This brief analyzes the rates of return in Tanzania for two main educational trajectories, academic and vocational, as a way of determining policy priorities for developing the education sector. Rounding out academic skills with vocational ones may promote longer participation in the academic path and increase returns for all parties, allowing for a strong foundation for entry into the workforce. Also, in Tanzania, firm size plays an important role. With the exception of university-level education, it was found that large firms increased returns for workers over small firms, and this is an important predictor for the rates of return for on-the-job training. en
