Abstract

This chapter first considers the concept of graduate employability and the skills and other attributes needed to become an employable graduate. The chapter then defines skills and considers how skills can be developed and the connection between skills, knowledge and behaviours. Many business and management skills are dependent on a student's ability not only to think logically but also to use what are known as ‘multiple intelligences’. Linked to this concept is that of emotional intelligence (EI), which has been proposed as one of the key ‘must-haves’ for senior managers.
