Network’s industry partnerships secure jobs for graduates
universityworldnews.com – April 26, 2023
University graduates from a pan-African private higher education network have defied the odds in Africa, a continent suffering high graduate unemployment rates, by crafting partnerships involving universities as well as the private and public sectors to increase job placements which, in some instances, are securing a 90% employment rate.
Institutions under the university network, which has 71,000 students in Morocco, Nigeria, Tunisia and South Africa, have been successful in fighting joblessness among its graduates through courses that place a strong emphasis on employability.
The partnerships of the Honoris United Universities network, launched in 2017, have developed tailor-made programmes through a number of initiatives, according to a report titled Pan-African Student Employability, including data up to 2022 and detailing some of its strategies.
