Abstract

This paper presents an alumni research study as a model for assessing how well higher education prepares graduates for changing professional and labour market realities. Results revealed that, while alumni valued the innovative curriculum, they recommended increased focus on functional skills; more balance between team work and individual work; and expansion of the programme's area of specialisation. Policy recommendations advocated strengthening the emphasis on functional skills; intensifying the rigour of technical and financial coursessemi; linking the faculty as mentors to students for career developmentsemi; and expanding the school's reputation for excellence in finance as well as in entrepreneurship.
