Abstract

Faggian A., Comunian R., Jewell S. and Kelly U. Bohemian graduates in the UK: disciplines and location determinants of creative careers, Regional Studies. The human capital and regional economic development literature has become increasingly interested in the role of the ‘Bohemian occupations’ on economic growth. By using UK higher education student micro-data, the characteristics and location determinants of creative (Bohemian) graduates are investigated. Three specific subgroups are examined: creative arts and design graduates; creative media graduates; and other creative graduates. It is found that these disciplines influence the ability of graduates to enter creative occupations and to be successful in the labour market. The role of geography is also highlighted, with London and the South East emerging as hubs for studying and providing Bohemian graduates with more labour market opportunities.
