Abstract: This paper analyses the role that university quality holds, among other socio-economic factors, in the sequential migration behaviour of Italian students and graduates. Regardless of the recognition of universities as key drivers of economic development, empirical evidence on the effects of their quality on the attraction and retention of students and graduates is still limited, and mainly related to Anglo-Saxon countries. This study aims at partly filling this knowledge gap. Its results indicate that both university research and teaching quality influence migration choices and, consequently, affirm that universities are ‘supply’ tools for policy-makers, in order to counterbalance the negative effects of brain drain on regional human capital accumulation.
