Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to find the factors that affects perceived employability of graduates that been involved in student associations. In addition, finding the potential relationship between perceived employability and student associations. We are applying a mixed method approach on our research, with the usage of both interviews and a survey as well a theoretical framework consisting of previous literature regarding the components of the topic. The reasoning behind a mixed method approach was to be able to create a triangulation and cross-check the answers. Overall, the research points out the potential positive relationship between student associations and perceived employability and factors found through the data collection. Leadership is one category that was highlighted in the primary data, but not found in theory. Therefore, we suggest further research about leadership and its effect on employability as well as its relationship to student association.
