Learning several languages, being open-minded, expressing an understanding for other cultures while demonstrating a willingness to network and collaborate, are essential intercultural skills for graduates seeking employment with European businesses and employers, says new research by academics at London South Bank University (LSBU), conducted jointly with three European and one other UK university. In this session, we report on the results from our two graduate and employer surveys and interviews.  The research is part of our Erasmus+ grant on ‘Developing the cross-cultural skills of graduates in response to the needs of European enterprise’ (2019 – 2022). The comparative research was conducted in Belgium, Sweden, Turkey and the UK and is a collaboration between the University of Worcester (Project lead, UK), London South Bank University (UK), UC Leuven-Limburg (Belgium), Halmstad University (Sweden) and Bursa Uludağ University (Turkey).
