Talent Fishing: What Businesses Want from Postgraduates
A CIHE Report for Department of Business Innovation and Skills

The report is based on detailed consultations with senior managers and HR directors in 56 businesses – many of them global recruiters – and indicates there is a high level of demand for, and satisfaction with higher degrees.
It also identifies a number of areas where Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and businesses must work together to improve the wider skills of postgraduates, particularly around leadership and work experience. The report suggests that there are significant issues around communicating the value of postgraduate degrees to some employers.
