This research aims to identify and provide a foundation or solution to the development of superior human resources for the benefit of the development of society, nation and state, namely by increasing the competence of graduates and the learning quality in higher education in Indonesia. In addition, this study also aims to prove empirically that learning outcomes and Indonesian Qualification Framework (IQF)-based curriculum as moderating variables can improve the competence of university graduates in Indonesia. Using probability sampling method with random sampling technique, this research also use MRA (Multiple Regression Analysis) analysis tool as the hypothesis testing. The results showed that the learning quality had a significant direct effect on the competence of graduates. The indirect effect of learning quality on graduates' competencies with learning outcomes and IQF-based curriculum as moderating variables shows that the IQF-based curriculum strengthens the influence of learning quality on graduate competencies. Therefore, the IQF-based curriculum is a moderating variable to improve graduate competencies. On the other hand, learning outcome does not strengthen the relationship of learning quality to graduate competencies, so learning outcome is not a moderating variable.
