Abstract

The vision of any higher education institution is extension of opportunity to all aspirants of education, and expansion across all realms of knowledge. Keeping in line with this vision, institutions of higher education should ideally offer opportunity to take any course to eligible aspirant in any stream of study that it offers. The vision also encompasses a self reliant society where all people are educated and productively engaged, with the objective of creating academically empowered and ready-for-the-job professionals in diverse fields. To realize this curriculum should provide for building employability skills among students. It is widely agreed that curriculum per se and real job performance do not match and there is need to incorporate skill supplements to boost employability. This paper attempts to outline the measures undertaken to create employment preparedness among students at Srinivas Institute of Management Studies (SIMS), Mangalore.

Keywords: Employability skill, Innovations in higher education
