Education is a process that develops human abilities and attitudes. Higher education began expanding its reach after WWII due to the growing political awareness of its importance for a nation’s future prospects. This study focuses on how higher education impacted Malaysian graduates by reviewing the system’s development from 1957 to present day and even beyond to 2025. A qualitative approach is used, based mostly on books, journals and qualified papers. We identify how Malaysia’s system of higher education system ensured the future employment of its graduates. In addition, we provide the set of governmental guidelines that help maintain and enhance the system’s production of marketable graduates; thus, ensuring their employability in the global job market.
