The Fallout From Rising University Dropouts

Earlier this month, Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Dr Noraini Ahmad told parliament that over 38,000 students dropped out of or deferred from courses in public and private higher education institutions. What is the implication of this trend for Malaysia's labor force and the private higher education sector? We discuss the issues at hand with Dr. Premkumar Rajagopal of the Malaysia University of Science and Technology. Image credit: Shutterstock.com
