  • Liberal arts schools address skills gap with experiential learning

    U.S. News University - 07/20/2014

    While most college students grapple with concerns about their potential employment following graduation, liberal arts majors often face particularly worrisome odds. Fortunately, a recent study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers found that conditions have certainly improved, with more graduates holding a bachelor’s degree in communications, visual and performing arts or related disciplines receiving job offers this year than in 2013.

    However, in an ultra-competitive job market, the pressure is still on for students to acquire the skills that companies demand – and for schools to provide them.

    This urgency is especially evident from a new Northeastern University report, which revealed that a staggering 90% of executives believe college grads lack the most important skills required for success.
