Abstract

This study recognises the important industrial, business skills and personal attributes necessary to support the 'employability' of undergraduate business students in China.The students were surveyed regarding their perceptions on the importance of certain general business and industrial skills and personal attributes which contribute to employability of the students in the industries in China. Results suggest the overall importance of establishing a platform for the career advancement of graduates. Based on the findings, specific implications related to employers, and students were identified. The study offers new insights into the concept of employability by reclamation of the value of skills and personal attributes required at work place. The paper addresses a foundation to support the 'job-readiness' and 'employability' of business graduates.
