A nation‘s competitiveness is achieved when its citizens possess the strength of character and culture both of which could arguably be said to arise from an excellent education system. Although Indonesia faces a formidable challenge in ensuring its minimum compulsory education due to the large number of school-age citizens, retention rates appear to continue to increase. The Indonesian Ministry of National Education envisaged a higher education (HE) gross enrolment rate of 35% in 2015 rising from 28% in 2012 (Kemdikbud, 2014). As the Indonesian higher education system has been dominated by private HE institutions, increases in higher education enrolment pose no problems to the government. The National Board of Accreditation (BAN-PT) ensures a basic quality level of its private HE institutions. However, it appears that the increase in the number of jobs for graduates is not commensurate with the increase in the number of graduates. This situation is exacerbated by the predicted gross enrolment rates which continue to increase. This means that many qualified graduates are not getting jobs or not getting jobs that they had been educated and trained for. It is not difficult to see that this situation creates social problems in the community.
