Neha Gupta Jena


The curriculum profile that is required by management graduates in this competitive environment is going under considerable change. Demands and expectations of businesses and corporate are increasing from their potential employees. These expectations can only be fulfilled if desired changes in the curriculum are being done by the universities who are actually entrusted with this responsibility. This paper focuses on determining the competencies that a firm demands from university graduates and determining the curricula that universities follow to educate their students and identify the gap between the two. Questionnaire method will be used for collecting Data from HR managers of different firm and management graduates of different institutes. SPSS will be used for analysis of data. Practical implications: universities can use this information to make desired and demanded changes in curriculum and improve their student’s employability. Study revealed that university curriculum failed to match up to the expectations of industry experts. Curriculum needs to be updated to provide more of practical knowledge to students instead of theoretical. Curriculum or teaching methodology should be such so as to enhance students skills in most demanded areas like innovative thinking, flexibility, workplace experience etc.
