Employability Skills: Student Perceptions of an IS Final Year Capstone Subject

“Our study suggests that the participants believed the capstone subject did improve a broad range of employability skills and it also demonstrates the interrelated nature of these skills...Time management was also an element in interviewing clients and many students mentioned the importance of making the best use of the limited interview time” (p.12) “In other words, students recognised that an essential part of teamwork is the planning/organising skills such as allocating people to tasks and establishing clear goals and deliverables.” (p.10)
