The paper discusses findings from a tracer study of B.Com graduates of the Faculty of Commerce and Management of the University of Dar es Salaam. Findings about the level and type of technical knowledge and skills required of graduates in the job market are related to the faculty curriculum. The paper further discusses employers’ evaluation of the knowledge and skills of graduates. The conclusion is that although knowledge and skills imparted by the Faculty were found to be relevant in the job market, there was a need to restructure the faculty programme in order to rationalise the extent of generalisation as against specialisation, streamline existing courses, include more relevant courses and address the needs of the emerging private sector.
