As time progresses societies’ needs and ideas change and evolve. The areas considered in this article relate to academic research, curriculum and theory development, the reality of the role that employees play in an organisation with the increased use of outsourcing of certain jobs and the so-called devolving part of the function of the future human resource manager. The curriculum itself is an area of interest, since what the students are taught today impacts on business in later years when they have power to make decisions. Business owners need a knowledge base in the future from which to draw; research is showing areas that managers and academics believe that must be included in the curriculum. Academic research is always going to be an important area for tertiary education. The future of businesses and managers is dependent on having lecturers now who are knowledgeable in their field and skilled in teaching. There is a need for an expanded curriculum both at the undergraduate- and Masters Programmes to ensure that all possible fields in business and other disciplines are covered. Greater recognition is necessary for teaching abilities and its value in the academic world in order to effectively develop both the profession and that of students’ knowledge, skills and competencies in the future. Suggestions are provided for possible improvements in the tertiary curriculum to have skilled and knowledgeable students as future employees in the workplace who add value to their organisation.
