No matter where in the industry they work.

Students wishing to study graphic design should possess some of the following qualities:
Creativity First and foremost, be original. Graphic design is a means of getting a message to a mass audience, but in order to do that you'll need to get their attention in a way that no one has ever done before.
Be a Good Listener Graphic design isn't all about you. It involves dealing with clients and supervisors who have their own expectations. You'll need to understand what they're looking for and what you can do to meet their objectives.
Communicate Effectively Can you apply the needs and wants of your client AND get a message across in a clear, concise manner.
Drawing/Sketching As computers have become the norm for graphic designers, the need for pen and paper have decreased. However, the ability to quickly sketch ideas for a client, or incorporate illustrations into a design project will always be an added benefit.
