Meanwhile, 45 per cent of students believe that the most valuable skills they will need for a career in IT are communication skills.
The findings come from research conducted at an e-Skills event held at CA Technologies' UK headquarters that polled 81 students from eight universities across Britain.
The survey also found that the most popular destinations for ITMB graduates is employment with an IT supplier (34 per cent) or within retail (21 per cent).
