Graduate Profile

The School of Economics and Business is committed to providing the country with graduates in business and economics who are equipped to make a contribution to the community. They are capable of analyzing complex situations, proposing solutions and improvement. They can lead processes of change, develop multidisciplinary teamwork in professional practice; and respect and promote the high standards of ethics, transparency, and economic and social wellbeing that current managerial best practice requires.

We aspire to form students with a genuine concern for social responsibility and citizenship, who will use their profession to contribute to the development of the common good, drawing on the skills and knowledge acquired during their time with us.

The learning pathway of the School of Economics and Management is organized into clusters, which include all the competences required for and involved in each of three cycles (Basic, Disciplinary, and Professional). Competences are also grouped into two types: key (generic), and specific. Key/ generic competences are those that equip students to interact appropriately with their social environs, and in the workplace. They are developed and certified through teaching and learning interactions (rather than in specially designated portions of the curriculum), and are monitored and evaluated at various stages of the learning process.

The specific competences required are those which equip a student to successfully negotiate the challenges and everyday requirements of the profession. These are developed in a linked set of specific curricular activities, grouped into dimensions or clusters corresponding to actions or situations essential to professional practice.
