This paper analyzes impacts of the Bologna Reform for Germany by using unique micro data from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Variation in treatment introduction generates exogenous assignment of students into a treatment (Bachelor) and control group (Diploma). We account for potentially remaining selection bias by estimating a 2SLS model. Our results indicate i.a. that the reform led to a significant and sizeable increase in the probability of graduating within planned instructional time.
