Higher Education and Entrepreneurial Studies: A Hallmark for National Development
Akinwumi, Femi Sunday; Adebayo, Timothy Afolami
African Higher Education Review, v8 n1 p95-100 Jul 2014
This paper posits an articulation between skill acquisition and development. It attempts to critically reposition tertiary education curriculum in order to avert mass production of academic dregs in Nigeria. The issue of unemployment in Nigeria and the need for restructuring tertiary institutions' curricula to include entrepreneurial studies as the only way out of the present predicament being faced by the teeming graduates seeking for unavailable jobs is discussed. It is recommended that focusing on entrepreneurial training would lead to skill acquisition, job creators rather than job seekers and a mass reduction in youths' unemployment in Nigeria.
