Relating Higher Education with the Labour Market: Graduates' Expectations and Employers' Requirements
Nicolescu, Luminita; Paun, Cristian
Tertiary Education and Management, v15 n1 p17-33 Mar 2009
The paper takes into discussion the issue of quality of higher education services, from the perspective of graduates and employers as main beneficiaries of higher education services, by putting face to face expectations of students at graduation with employers' requirements. In the two surveys conducted in 2006 in Romania, both graduates and employers have been asked about skills and abilities developed through higher education programmes and the extent to which these correspond to their expectations and requirements. The discussion is relevant to the vast literature presenting the skills debate, employment and graduates transition to the labour market, as well as to the literature presenting students' expectations from higher education. (Contains 6 tables.)
