The paper estimates returns to college education in the development Bank of Ethiopia (DBE). Using a mincerian earnings function and correcting for selection bias, the paper shows that there are positive private returns to college education (of about 8.6%), experience and performance evaluation. However, compared with the average returns to college education for the country as a whole (which is close to 27.4% ) the returns obtained for the DBE seem far from attractive and would thus seem to necessitate revision in the bank’s pay-scales if the DBE is to survive as an efficient bank in an increasingly competitive financial lab our market
