Universities are increasing being required to make explicit the desired educational outcomes of their graduates. Currently many universities are developing graduate capability statements to address this expectation. In this paper, we explore desirable capabilities for marketing graduates and present a schema outlining discipline knowledge and a range of generic capabilities that are necessary to make use of marketing knowledge. In doing this we draw on the concepts of expertise and tacit knowledge and present them in a marketing context. Some broad recommendations are made how these capabilities can be developed.
