The Challenges of ICT Graduate Un-Employment in Developing Economies in Africa - Case Study: Ghana

Abstract: 

This paper seeks to elucidate the various challenges of Information & Communication Technology (I.C.T) graduate unemployment in the sub-Saharan Africa, and the remedies that can be used to address those issues. This research postulates some four modules of I.C.T graduates and categorized graduates of I.C.T in one of such modules. The study again went further to analyze the calibre of each category of I.C.T graduates who pass out of the various tertiary institutions and their job prospects. The paper concludes by identifying the major causes of the growing concern on these challenges and measures that can address the growing phenomenon of I.C.T graduate un-employment across developing countries.
