from the link
Lower-cost centers like Eastern Europe and China could become serious rivals for outsourcing business from Western multinational companies.

I think this can be related with numerous thread ranchers have posted in this forum concerning about increasing salaries, but still it will take another 10-15 years if there is a steady growth in salaries of software professionals and other ITES employees in India.

India produced three million college graduates every year, including nearly 400,000 engineers. �But most of these are uncut diamonds that have to go through polishing factories, as the trade requires only polished stones.

Agreee but I think this is not the problem of India alone, well tell me any university or collge in the world who produces graduate who are well equipped for the market.

Another aspect of this is, if Indias yearly output of millions of engineers falls short, not sure about China, but entire Eastern European workforce will be gone in mere months, and they produce even fewer new engineers and the like!

Then again, its an open market, and I am sure no on expects India to be the only outsourcing destination for ever!

I am not aware of any JavaRanch rule like that.

Hi Joe,
Having graduated from DeVry university, I can't back up your claim that they produce graduates well equipped for the market(Most of the people in my class cheated their way to their degree and hence, have no jobs right now). I think it's upto the individual, not the university, to make an effort to get as much out of their respective college/university as they can regardless of where that university is located.

It's not a rule, but it's a guideline we use in MD a lot. If someone posts a link to a potentially inflamatory article, and they don't include any comments of their own, that post is very likely to be deleted.

I agree with Sameer. I think most schools don't give students the skills to hit the ground running day one. I also don't think colleges should necessarily teach that. Colleges are supposed to teahc you fundamentals, not whatever technologies are currently en vogue.

DeVry does the opposite. It foces on whatever buzzwords and technologies are "hot." It doesn't teach any fundamentals and from what I've seen out the graduates I've met, it's a waste of money.
