Abstract

In the times when the society rapidly moves towards more multidisciplinary knowledge, university graduates strive to meet the challenges faced by economic and social organisations. University education being a ‘set of interacting ecosystems’ (Biggs,1993) is expected to create a learning environment where students can get the optimal opportunity to learn and achieve the best sustainable economic output. The traditional approach to studying at the University is challenged by the new economy. In addition to specialist knowledge graduates are expected to be equipped with such skills such as self-efficiency, effective communication, organisational proficiency and problem solving competences that are the foundations of success in sustainable career development.
