    In the knowledge society progress depends on innovation, on the knowledge acquired through education, on the science put in practice with the purpose of improving the natural, economic, technical and social condition of human life. Universities are in that favoured position of keeping and creating science, of training through and for science. But, universities face today a series of challenges originated in their relation with the state, with the actors from the national and international extra-university environment, in particular with those active in the labour market. The article explores a variety of education mismatches in the graduate labour market: from over-education to skill mismatches and their impact on the employability. It also focuses on the expected improvement of quality management and of the shared responsibilities for the employability of graduates in the interaction between universities and employers.
