Chairman of the National assessment and accreditation council (NAAC) executive committee, Goverdhan Mehta, has called for an innovative approach to raise the employability of graduates passing out of universities with traditional arts, commerce and science degrees.
"We need out-of-the-box thinking to tackle the issue, considering that barely 10% of the 30 lakh students, who pass with these degrees every year, are considered employable in today’s competitive world", he said at the 105th convocation ceremony of the University of Pune (UoP) on Saturday, 14th Jan. Officiating vice-chancellor Sanjay Chahande presided over the ceremony. Mehta, also a noted scientist and former director of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, said "emphasis needs to be laid on blending skills with education for employment, entrepreneurship development, knowledge and creation of wealth. The prevailing higher education system needs to be more flexible in terms of adapting to the modern-day changes", he said. "Promoting liberal education can be a good alternative in this direction to help the system come out of an age-old structured format", he said. "Inter-disciplinary studies should be taken up by students instead of going for traditional studies", he added. Earlier, Chahande said "the university is making efforts to promote value-based education, which is critical to the development of students".
