Abstract

The setting for this case study is a second year core module for accounting students in the Business School of a modern university. We shall explain how we have used authentic, practical online experiences in the module to enhance students’ employability. The Business School offers a range of activities to support students as they develop the skills they need to make them more employable. In addition, we have brought an employability specialist onto the module’s teaching team to deliver sessions and, importantly, to make the employability skills embedded in the module explicit. This case study will show how we have used the module to give students experience of working in virtual teams to provide them with the skills they will need in their future careers and to be successful in virtual assessment centres.
