Drawing upon data from more than 600 surveys of graduates of Bachelor level programs in Creative Industries and Business fields from three Australian universities, this chapter: describes the professional networks of recent graduates; characterises their levels of social capital and benchmarks current graduate connectedness capability levels to identify opportunities for development in degree programs.
