Abstract: 
Nach der schrittweisen Umstellung der alten Hochschulabschlüsse auf ein Bachelor-/Master-System stellt sich die Frage, wie dies von Studierenden und Unternehmen angenommen und bewertet wird. Die Autoren zeigen für Universitäten und Fachhochschulen, wie sich die Einführung des Bachelors unter anderem auf Studierendenzahlen, Studienzeiten und Einstiegsgehälter nach dem Abschluss auswirkt.
Abstract (Translated): 
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) states that the Bologna Accords have been successfully implemented in Germany. However, empirical studies show that this can be very questionable. The aim to reduce the average study duration has not been accomplished mainly due to a higher than expected conversion rate from Bachelor to Master level. Although the Bachelor's degree is broadly accepted among future employers, the majority of students do not trust the career opportunities with a Bachelor's degree only and prefer to undertake a Master's degree. In fact, the starting salaries for Bachelor's degree graduates, especially from universities, are signifi cantly lower than for the graduates holding a Diploma or a Master's degree.
