Examination of Employers’ Expectations towards Career Entrants from Learning Outcomes Point of View
Educational institutes face continuous expectations to be able to meet and answer the constantly changing requirements of the business sector, which are parallel shaping according to the social, technological, and cultural changes of the era. In this paper, authors compare competences referring to the higher education learning outcomes with the expectations of the business sector, drawing attention to the fact that although flexibility of educational institutes as well as their response time on environmental changes have become better, the distance between the two sectors is still significantly big. The data used for the comparison are partly taken from literature, while a questionnaire research and a focus group interview were conducted to survey students’ competences and the requirements of the business sphere.
