You're applying for a graduate degree ('previous university')?
I would think in any case references are important in the sense that if it's from someone important obviously could land you offers, but if not, they would be the last barrier for you to pass.
If you're applying for an academic course, I'd think a reference from your tutor would be almost essential unless you've worked for a couple of years.

I'd like to ask two things.
a) How important is the reference in the scheme of things (I'm applying for Accounting and Finance at mainly RG universities)
b) How 'bad' is it if I get an employer to do my reference instead of a tutor from my college, or from my previous university?
