Using data to better understand employability skills in relation to business school aspirations

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

The presentation focuses on the employability skills of business students & employer perceptions of these skills in an increasingly globalized world. Host evaluations & student self-evaluations are utilized to explore perceptions of skill levels across key employability areas, as well as the aspired cultivation of global and effective citizenship. Employability skill areas where host and student self-ratings are significantly difference are discussed i.e., organization and planning, oral communication, presentation skills & integrated business knowledge. Interestingly, no significant differences were found between host and self-evaluation across characteristics that contribute to the development of global & effective citizenship, which is a key graduate attribute of the university. This topic is of international relevance and will stimulate the audience to reflect on the enhancement of employability skills & cultivation of global & effective citizenship in university graduates.
