Abstract

The aim of this comparative study is to provide insight into the views of transnational corporations about higher education. Little appears to be known about how employers based in different countries perceive higher education in their countries, what skills and attributes they are seeking in their graduate recruits, what the aims of higher education should be and what changes are needed to the higher education system to meet the needs of employers. The increasingly globalised economy means that such a perspective can enhance our understanding of employers as a major stakeholder in higher education. This report provides the findings from a qualitative survey of transnational corporations and other major companies from different employment sectors in four countries – Australia, Malaysia, the UK and the USA.
