Unemployment, Entrepreneurial Education and Mega Universities: Challenges to Expanding Access in Education in Nigeria University
Undie, John Atewhoble; Okafor, Victor
African Higher Education Review, v8 n1 p78-84 Jul 2014
In fundamental economics, individuals acquired education for two broad reasons, as an investment and as consumption. The investment function of education has continued to create tension for job search leading to cases of unemployment. Entrepreneurship education and establishment of mega universities have been identified as panaceas. This paper reviewed the inter-play of expanding access with its accompanying challenges in a growing economy. Expansion of access to education is likely to be accompanied with challenges of job creation after schooling.
