Abstract:

With every academic year passing by, academicians and society alike is concerned about the outcome of learning that takes place in educational institutions throughout the country. The concern calls for a review of the curriculum. There is a feeling that the education today does not prepare the youth suitably for work and life. There was a general accusation that graduates of yesteryears were not completely prepared for the workforce. There was lack of emphasis on soft skills which were needed in jobs e.g. communication skills, office skills, human relationships skills. But sadly, the scenario has not drastically changed even today. The curriculum should be such that it is on par with global universities thereby enabling our students to perform without any difficulty. This gave birth to OBE or Outcome-Based Education. This paper delineates the ways in which the curriculum can be altered to help students give the best output when they leave the portals of their educational institutions.
