Keywords: Graduate, Labor Market, Employability, University, Commitment, Ambition.

Abstract

There is a growing concern in the areas of employability that has increased in the last few decades due to the increased growth process and global competition. This study is based on identifying the impact of university commitment and student ambition on graduate employability. The research aimed to investigate the job market scenario in Bangladesh by reviewing the literature and provide suggestions to different stakeholders of employability. In total, the sample comprises 100 responses from students who are in their final year of study. Different international and local studies on this topic have been reviewed, and a structured questionnaire was used for collecting data from the respondents. The multiple Linear Regression method was used to analyze the data statistically. The result indicates that a one percent increase in the commitment by the university will increase graduate employability by 45 percent, while a one percent rise in student ambition will help to rise graduate employability by 31 percent.
