The authors examined the impact of employer-sponsored part-time college education on job mobility, using the case of the Tuition Assistance (TA) program of the U.S. Navy. They used two modeling approaches-a bivariate probit model of job mobility and TA usage that accounts for the endogeneity of TA usage, and a propensity score model. The results from both models showed that TA usage significantly decreases the probability of staying in the Navy.
