Thank you for this very relevant contribution to the role of higher education. The dialogue between higher education institutions and future employers of their graduates is vital and higher education institutions need to leave their comfort zone and show more willingness to adapt. Adapting does not mean selling out. However, it is equally important to remember that education also is about shaping the global citizens of tomorrow so the generic competences must still remain on the curricula in some integrated way. Higher education institutions have usually more autonomy than they want to acknowledge when it comes to their possibilites/opportunities to change but it requires leadership and that is today one of the weakest points of higher education. It is lacking decisive leadership.
