Ribara Social Network To Bridge Graduate-Industry Gaps


Ribara, a social network designed by field experts has expressed resolve to connect Alma mater industry peers and mentors protégés on campus.

It is also designed to reveal the value of individual skills and proficiencies and bridge the gaps between undergraduate/graduate training and the industry while tracking industry trends to help universities keep up.

Dr. Ada Peter, a member said exploring platform.ribara.co can tell young people exactly how they rank in the skills they claim to possess, what gaps exist between them, their dream job roles and show young people what bespoke offerings are capable of closing these gaps.

“The system also recommends field mentors and peers for informative interviews.

“Also, there are opportunities to pursue internship and graduate traineeship goals and to have access to these opportunities, visit the web app www.platform.Ribara.co.”

According to the organization, there are 200 million undergraduates worldwide, with 9 million in Africa and 1.7 million in Nigeria are affected each year by the widening gap between industry demands and what the “university” is offering.

“Often, graduates possess intense
theoretical knowledge but misses the practical skills needed for desired careers hence the need for Ribara.

In addition, the organization also pointed out that while it takes minutes, days, or weeks for industry needs and demands to change, it takes a minimum of 3 years to update a university curriculum.

“Hence Ribara Premium provides subscribing institutions and instructors with curriculum intelligence
to keep up with industry changes and provide relevant learning content.
