Graduates views of the course experience
|Development of generic skills|
"According to the national Course Experience Questionnaire survey, business and management graduates are moderately satisfied with their courses overall. Starting salaries were average, at $46,839 in 2010. Perhaps more important is the proportion of graduates who were unable to find full-time work. Unemployment rates rose from around ten per cent for graduates in 1989 to 30 per cent or more (depending on the specialisation) in 1992. At 31 per cent in 2010, unemployment is still higher than in other fields. Again, there are likely to be big variations according to the course, campus and specialisation, so shop with care. The skills and experience you gain through internships, co-curricular work and activities are other important determinants — and they’re often up to you."
