Industry, government and various professional organisations emphasize the need for the ICT graduates to be able to communicate in the global work environment. The elegant injection of ‘soft skills’ in the ICT curriculum is what differentiates good contemporary ICT programmes. This paper presents a joint pilot work in this area between the New Bulgarian University (NBU) and the University of Western Sydney (UWS). This blended learning approach aims to develop broad social intelligence knowledge and skills in the IT graduates, applicable by future IT specialists working in companies, ranging from small and medium enterprises to corporate global players.
