Institutions of higher learning must play a more proactive and effective role in a nation's development by producing a constant stream of knowledge workers with the prerequisite skills to meet the human-resource demands of government and industry.

Industries in need of knowledge workers are now approaching institutions of higher learning by supporting them through various joint partnerships and the establishment of funds and facilities, R&D initiatives and exchange programs. This book, besides providing vital information for institutions of higher learning, especially those involved in granting multimedia or IT-specific qualifications, rationalizes the need to thrive for excellence to meet the needs of modern industry.

Constant changes in processes, technology and markets mean that government and industry will expect institutions of higher learning to meet their need for skilled knowledge workers. This is in consonance with job-growth projections in the services sector, including transportation, communication, finance, insurance, real estate, and the whole sale and retail trade. As such, governments must heighten their resolve to enhance efforts at developing an effective workforce that is well equipped with the latest technological capabilities.
