For some time, universities have endeavored to address the shortfall in skill requirements that have been identified by prospective employers of graduates. The University of South Australia (UniSA) numbers itself among these universities and has identified a number of “graduate qualities” that are required to be developed within the curriculum. This chapter explores a case-study and role-play approach to embedding graduate qualities in an undergraduate business course that is delivered to a diverse student body studying either internally or externally, in Australia or in Hong Kong. It highlights a range of issues for successful implementation and assessment of these qualities.
