New Delhi [India], Feb 9 (ANI): The past five years have seen a rise in employability in higher education from 33 to 45 percent, a report drafted by a joint imitative of Wheebox, a global talent assessment company, PeopleStrong, an HR tech company and the CII stated.
While in 2014, the percentage of employable population was 33 percent, it has achieved a 5.6 percent increase to 45.60 percent this year. The key domains where the increase in employability has been very significant is engineering, pharma, MCA and other focused professional courses.
It has been found by Wheebox that focused vocational courses are creating more job ready candidates than generic courses. Also, the courses where practical experience and internships, have been included in the formal course content are faring better.
Another important aspect that has emerged from the supply side, came in the form of a reduction in employability amongst MBA courses. There is no such visible evidence; it seems that with exponential increase in the number of MBA colleges the quality of talent is seen to be declining, which needs government attention.
