AbstractBased on the data of postgraduates of seven key universities in Wuhan, a central China City, this paper tests the discrimination hypothesis by examining the effect of first degree quality on postgraduate’s starting salaries. The results show that students obtaining a bachelor degree from“211”(including“985”) universities enjoy both economically significant and statistically premium, with the quality of the final degree under control. The extent of discrimination varies with profession, occupations and industries with different starting salaries. Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition shows that with other variables be controlled, discrimination against non-top university degree- holders accounts for 62.51% of the difference in starting salaries. Using Melly decomposition approach to study further, it reveals that for the postgraduates with low starting salaries, discrimination against the quality of bachelor degree contributes greatly to the difference in starting salaries.
