Universities criticised for lack of industry ready graduates

The group is criticising the main universities for what it describes as their poor teaching methods, dry academic content and few applications to real business life.
ISME claims, as a result, graduates are ill-prepared for the workforce.
The business body said in order to guarantee success a practical approach to business subjects and an exposure to entrepreneurship in every degree is needed.
"What we're saying is that in many of the main universities with large classes and poor teaching methods they're not actually meeting the requirements of industry where you would have job ready graduates available," said Chief Executive of ISME Mark Fielding.
"So it's something that needs to be changed."
