Due to the unemployment wave, especially in higher educated graduates in Iran, universities are accused of insufficiency in responding to the labor market, which should be identified and presented accordingly by studying different dimesions of the issue.
Methods: This study was designed to investigate dimensions of accountability of universities to labor market by using a metasynthesis method, with applicable goal and metasynthesis data collection. Primary literature review consisted of 343 related studies. After initial screening, 201 articles and documents were selected to extract findings.
Results: Nineteen elements in three dimensions were extracted in this study: educational, skill and research dimension (eight elements), curriculum dimension (seven elements), management and structural dimension (four elements).
Conclusion: The components presented as results of this research include: providing skills training based on the labor market, formulating practical curricula according to the needs of the labor market, attentiveness of the heads and board of trustees of the university to accountability in the labor market, stakeholder participation in curriculum design, motivation and capacity building of faculty members in training graduates suitable for the labor market in each field and moving towards applied, and demand-oriented education and research. Consideration of these elements by higher education policy-makers and planners can reduce the gap between the current situation and the favorable situation of universities and provides a stepping stone in responding to the labor market, especially reducing unemployment and increasing the satisfaction of graduates, business owners and the labor market.
