College Graduates; Ambition Capital; Salary; Logit Model; Marginal Effect



Based on the data collecting by questionnaires, this paper intends to analyze the accumulation effect of ambition capital on the economic value of college graduates’ human capital through descriptive analyses and quantitative econometric method—the Logit model. And this paper particularly focuses on the quantitative relationship between a college graduate’s ambition capital and the likelihood he could get a higher than average salary. Under similar conditions, this paper proves that the different levels of accumulation in ambition capital will directly affect a college graduate’s likelihood to achieve his future value and the possibility he could gain a higher than average salary.
