Overcoming inertia and evolving institutions’ level of internationalisation to meet the need for better global graduates

As businesses increasingly traverse national borders, surveys of employers (e.g. CBI/Pearson 2017, QS 2019) show that they want to recruit graduates with ‘global skills’. At the same time, they report a lack of such skills in job applicants and new recruits.

In this paper, we investigate this fundamental challenge faced by the Higher Education sector, reporting on the steps being taken by researchers and institutions to advance their understanding of the conditions required to meet the growing need for global graduates.
