Even worse, supposed four-year universities are allowing many students to graduate with just three years of education under their belts. This is because most students are busy looking for a job from the second half of their third year, leaving them no time to attend classes. For the most part, private universities have no alternative but to tolerate this attitude from their students. A university’s reputation depends on its graduates successfully finding jobs after graduation. In order to ensure a sufficient intake of new students, a university cannot afford to stand in the way of the job-hunting of the current student body. This makes it almost impossible to impose strict grades and to get rid of students who fail to keep up. Both of these problems arise from the fact that private universities are financially dependent on the tuition fees they receive from students.
Why do students begin searching for a job so early, even if it means sacrificing so much of the time they have supposedly invested in getting an education?
