NewsUniversities fail to offer essential programming skills like Cobol PinstaffTerrence Dorsey10-Mar-13 11:40 
Universities are not offering the IT programming skills that firms need, according to global research. Skills in programming languages like Cobol, CICS and JCL are essential to support business-critical IT systems that underpin many organisations today, but the majority of IT courses don't support them.... Respondents were also asked how they thought their IT course students felt about learning Cobol skills, and 39 percent said their students viewed Cobol as "un-cool and outdated", with 15 percent saying they wouldn’t know what Cobol was.
There's also worryingly low enrollment in Conversational Latin.
