Abstract—Today’s challenging economic environment means that it is no longer enough for graduates to have knowledge of academic courses. It is necessary for students to acquire generic competencies that will enhance their employment prospects and make them more competitive in the job market. Previous studies examine that real estate formal curriculum in public universities lacks emphasis on assimilation of generic competencies in the curriculum. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the assimilation of generic competencies of graduates of this property. This study was carried out on the real estate graduates of public universities. A total of 200 questionnaires were collected. Descriptive and inferential Exploratory Factor Analysis was used to analyze the data. The finding was verified through focus group discussions with various stakeholders in the education estate. The précis of the analyses signified that generic competencies infused in the real estate program have not met the needs of the graduates.

Index Terms—Generic competency, graduate, real estate, skill.
