Institutions of higher learning must play a more proactive and effective role
in a nation's development by producing a constant stream of knowledge workers
with the prerequisite skills to meet the human-resource demands of government
Industries in need of knowledge workers are now approaching institutions of
higher learning by supporting them through various joint partnerships and the
establishment of funds and facilities, R&D initiatives and exchange programs.
This book, besides providing vital information for institutions of higher learning,
especially those involved in granting multimedia or IT-specific qualifications,
rationalizes the need to thrive for excellence to meet the needs of modern industry.
Constant changes in processes, technology and markets mean that government and
industry will expect institutions of higher learning to meet their need for
skilled knowledge workers. This is in consonance with job-growth projections
in the services sector, including transportation, communication, finance, insurance,
real estate, and the whole sale and retail trade. As such, governments must
heighten their resolve to enhance efforts at developing an effective workforce
that is well equipped with the latest technological capabilities.
