[Abstract]: This paper discusses how a set of ‘mandated’ generic graduate attributes were incorporated, by a retrofit, into an IS undergraduate degree program. The current challenge is to implement these attributes completely by matching them to course objectives, by explicitly including and assessing them, and by refining teaching and learning strategies to be cognisant of them. Other considerations identified are the extent to which these attributes actually suit the needs of IT/business graduates (including those contemplating postgraduate study), employers of IS graduates, and professional bodies. Attributes not addressed in the generic set are also considered as are attributes students possess prior to beginning degree studies.
