Lamjad, Hafizah and Harun, Hanani Syafiqah (2016) Holistic, entrepreneurial and balance graduates culminate employability / Hafizah Lamjad and Hanani Syafiqah Harun. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


The study focused on the Higher Education System in Malaysia
that leads to marketable graduates in the job market. It emphasizes
on the quality of the Malaysian higher education system that lead to
the empowerment and employment of fresh graduates on the field,
demand, and real job situation in the industry. Malaysian higher
education system still engaged a scholastic bias, to be sure,
evidenced in the school's preoccupation with preparing candidates
for university, rather than intermediate employment opportunities.
By looking at the current education system, the higher education
institution provides education plan which differs with what the
organization needed in the market. The purpose of the study is to
determine if Malaysia higher education system is compatible to the
career demand in the industry and to study if Malaysian Graduates
are holistic, entrepreneur and balance that contributes to
employability. The information was gathered through secondary
data and interviewed. The findings, holistic, entrepreneurial and
balanced graduates have set out the Ministry's vision of developing
well rounded graduates with both character and knowledge by
elevating values driven and entrepreneurial learning. This is done
through an enhanced curriculum, movement of people through
cross border to encourage the cultural exchange, expanded
industry collaboration and experiential learning programmes, as
well as a new integrated assessment that looks at the holistic
development of graduates. Overall, the primary findings did support
the secondary data. The courses offered are not competent or not
compatible with the skills or requirement as demanded by the
industry and the findings obtained from interview also found that,
Malaysian graduates are equipped with the skills, values and
knowledge. However, the industry itself is quite challenging that
sometimes makes them difficult to being hired.
