    • Lack of basic English skills in grammar and spelling
    • Short in math and computation
    • Fault grads’ spoken English

  • The biggest complaint by hirers was that the graduates lacked “professionalism” or “work ethic,” a deficiency listed by half of those surveyed. Nearly half detected a lack of “business acumen.”
