Abstract

 This chapter considers the role of migration management in understanding the motivation of international students from the Global South who choose to study in Australia. The chapter reports a study of self-perceived employability as reported by 5,000 undergraduate business students. We compare the confidence of international students from the Global South with that reported by their domestic student peers, and we relate this to academic performance data. The chapter highlights employability traits for which targeted supports might positively impact the graduate employability of Global South international students. The findings have particular relevance for stakeholders seeking to engage both on- and off-shore international students during the current pandemic.
