Abstract

In the era of globalization, students face complex career problems regarding the importance of soft skills. This study aimed to identify and explore soft skills that constitute organizational values. It involved distributing 156 questionnaires to 783 Islamic students using SPSS 23 factor analysis, with organizational value instruments spread across twenty-four soft skills. The instruments used were unique and complete owing to the inclusion of distinctive and universal values for Islamic higher institutions. Despite the lack of similar research, students have been shown to play an important role in their success, as they implement programs, services, and curricula that govern their college experience. This study attempted to fill the gap by proposing an exploration and identification of instruments to measure organizational values in an Islamic university. The results reflected the need for student development programs in higher institutions to focus on Islamic soft skills and organizational values that positively impact students.
