This book reports one of the few studies on understanding international graduates' employability from the perspective of employers. It specifically explores the beliefs of employers in Finnish companies operating in China on the employability of Chinese graduates from Finnish higher education, and how the beliefs evolve. It not only provides first-hand information about China-based Finnish employers' perceptions of the value of Finnish-educated Chinese graduates, but also makes special contributions by developing a theoretical framework and a methodological approach to understand employers' perceptions of graduate employability. On the basis of the empirical findings, the book provides suggestions for Finnish employers, international students and Finnish HEIs on how to strategically play their roles in promoting a positive loop between attracting gifted international students to Finnish higher education and the career success of these graduates. The book will be of particular interest to managers of Finnish companies operating in China, actors involved in Finnish international higher education, as well as Chinese students in Finland. It is also intended for researchers and practitioners interested in the employability of international graduates and the marketing of international education.
