Globalization and ICT revolution have changed the parameters of employability. Skills required become very specific to many fields like HR, Project Management and Engineer… All these changes have driven higher education to become a global industry. During the past 10–15 years, the mobility of Lebanese people increased considerably to foreign neighboring countries. It started in the 1980s with the Lebanese civil war and progressed until today. One of the reasons remains that young fresh graduated hardly find jobs in Lebanon and prefer Arab countries that can grant more wealth and secure wage. Some of the most significant challenges that society faces today are matching education and labor market requirement. This article describes student’s actual perception of education as well as the influence of learning and experience on their self-confidence and its impact on employability. The methodology used is quantitative based on questionnaire conducted using a convenience sampling without pre-test. It will seek to offer some suggestions for enhancing the support of learning in the Lebanese public universities.
