Universities produce graduates to businesses’ orders

About 400,000 students finish universities every year, but most of them cannot satisfy employers and they need to undergo retraining at their place of work. Therefore, businesses now tend to order universities to produce workers who can meet their standards, reports VietNamNet Bridge.
