Egbenta, Idu Robert
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n31 p41-49 2015
There is wide claim that employers have a high level of dissatisfaction associated with graduates from Nigeria higher institutions of learning. This paper examines whether graduates of estate management in Nigeria higher institutions have employability skills for productive employment. The study randomly sampled 59 principal partners or heads of practicing of Estate Surveying and Valuation firms in Nigeria. Descriptive analysis such as percentage, frequency, mean and standard deviation were used to analyse the data. The result showed that graduates of estate management have low employability skills to work effectively in estate surveying and valuation firms. The study suggests that employability skills should be taught as one of the topics in the professional practice course or entrepreneurship studies in order to equip graduates of estate management to meet the challenges in the world of work.
