Abstract

This thesis gives a cameo of the perceptions of graduating students, lecturers and employers about the range of skills needed by business degree students to successfully obtain employment in China. This research commences with an investigation of the role and development of personal, interpersonal, workplace and career related skills in higher education students which have been discussed amongst educators, employers and professional bodies for many years in Australia. This research presents a framework which emphasises the dynamic and complex interrelationships between a business degree curriculum that is taught in Australia and China.
