Abstract

The challenge for universities offering programs of study is to provide avenues for learning which are reflective of the needs of society, meet the needs of employers in Corporate Australia, and which are reflective of the technology now available. While innovation is an obvious key, any degree program must continue to provide suitable training and education for students so that they are “workplace ready” upon graduation.
