Why is this graduate attribute important?

The challenges of our globalised world are such that it is not enough simply to know and understand issues in specific field of study: to be successful in life and in their chosen careers, our graduates must have a heightened curiousity about the world and a willingness to explore it in fresh and previously-unchartered ways. DIT graduates should possess the knowledge and abilities to contribute in a meaningful way to the complex and ever-changing society in which they live, and therefore we emphasise excellence in learning, teaching, scholarship, research and support for entrepreneurship.
