According to Nicholas Negroponte, “No matter what global problem you are dreading, whether it’s the elimination of poverty, whether it’s the creation of peace, whether its solving environmental energy problems, the solution- whatever it is- multiple solutions, the solutions always include education.” The quality of education almost always determines the quality of productivity and development worldwide. These profound statements succinctly capture the essence and significance of this study. Having been in operation for over twelve years now, it is appropriate at this time to evaluate Employers’ perception of Covenant University [CU] graduates. This exercise is apt to inform CU management what to strengthen or change for overall improvement of its education delivery services. Such exercise is a norm in virtually all in institutions operating Total Quality Management [TQM] systems worldwide. It is against this background this study was undertaken. The problems that prompted this study were firstly, Employers’ dissatisfaction with the quality of graduates produced by Nigerian Universities. Many present day graduates were described as half-baked; and secondly, Covenant Universities’ concern about the performance of their graduates, which is an indication of the fulfillment of the institutions’ vision and mission statements.
