Uni­ver­sity over­haul

THE (Times Higher Education) - - NEWS -

Busi­ness lead­ers have urged the Zim­bab­wean gov­ern­ment to re­duce the num­ber of state-run uni­ver­si­ties in the coun­try. At the Stan­dards As­so­ci­a­tion of Zim­babwe Busi­ness Lead­ers Con­fer­ence, Zim­babwe Na­tional Cham­ber of Com­merce chief ex­ec­u­tive Chris Mu­gaga said that some uni­ver­si­ties were adding no value to the econ­omy. “There are too many state uni­ver­si­ties in the coun­try,” he added. “Let’s re­duce them and also change the cur­ricu­lum, be­cause a ma­jor­ity of them con­cen­trate on so­cial sci­ences when the coun­try re­quires en­gi­neers,” he said, ac­cord­ing to African news site In­side Ed­u­ca­tion.
