Research activity

The Business Edge team has an active interest in research and a growing research profile.

Current research areas include graduate employability, team work, student engagement, work integrated learning, workplace learning and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Employability skills

The Business Edge program is dedicated to enhancing graduate employability in ECU graduates through the development of non-technical skills. Key examples are working effectively with others, communicating effectively, thinking critically and self-management. These, among others, are considered vital by today’s employers and a key consideration when recruiting graduates.

Business Edge’s success in the teaching and learning of non-technical skills relies not only on quality programs and strong facilitators but also innovative research in the field. Business Edge has conducted a major project on framing industry-relevant non-technical skills, producing the Business Edge Employability Skills Framework, and mapping the program’s curriculum to ensure alignment with employer needs.
