Abstract

Executive Summary The aim of the project was to promote and support strategic change in advancing graduate attribute development in Business education through engagement of staff and students with learning and assessment processes that embed graduate attribute development. The focus on graduate attributes currently is of upmost importance as Australian Business schools obtain, or seek to attain, international accreditation such as AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). The quality assurance process of AACSB requires each degree program1 to specify learning goals, and demonstrate a student's achievement of these learning goals. The participating institutions had all achieved initial AACSB accreditation and were in the maintenance of accreditation process. This situation was crucial in the project initiation and provided a platform for driving forward the process at a strategic level as well as being a prime motivator in the engagement of academic staff with the project objectives.
