Uganda’s Unemployment Rate is expected to be 2.10 percent by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts’ expectations. In the long-term, the Uganda Unemployment Rate is projected to trend around 2.30 percent in 2020, according to our econometric models. This is partly due to the fact that there is a gap between what is actually taught by the university and the skills really needed in the job market, it is true that what is offered by the university is part of the knowledge needed for the graduate to get a job but is it enough to much up to the standards of the job market, Unfortunately for ICT graduates its so bad that they are sharing the market with the international or global market, meaning ICT graduates from other countries can come and take up jobs here as long as they are better at the job, this in away has created pressure on universities and higher institutions to assess whether they really deliver what employers perceive or expect any ICT graduate to bear for him/her to be relevant in the job market. This creates a need for a solution that will enable universities and tertiary institutions to assess their ranking in passing out market-relevant ICT graduates those e-intelligent, a web software that will help scout, review, analyze and report potential changes in that need addressing right from the students, graduates, institution administration up to the employers.
