Abstract. Our paper investigates the school-to-work transition of higher education graduates from European countries. Exploring REFLEX data set which includes information on first jobs held by the ISCED 5 graduates, we study the incidence and characteristics of youth entrepreneurship. Also, we find the educational, institutional and personal factors influencing entrepreneurship along the 13 European countries. Our results are important for designing future policies and programs for encouraging youth entrepreneurship, especially among those with higher education.

Keywords: entrepreneurship; youth; higher education.
