This paper investigates whether and how language and literacy education affects analysts’ career outcomes. Exploiting a staggered syllabus reform in China, which transforms Chinese language and literacy from a political education tool to a basic communication tool, we use difference-in-differences approach and find that treated analysts receive more and quicker promotions than those in the control group. We also show that the market reacts more strongly to recommendation revisions issued by treated analysts, suggesting stronger market influence of these analysts. Moreover, treated analysts are more willing to conduct site-visits, consistent with enhanced social skills and communicational capabilities that the reform designed to bring along. Finally, the effect of the reform on career outcomes is less pronounced for analysts from northern Chinese provinces, whose dialects are closer to mandarin.
