  • More Americans feel graduates unprepared after college

    CNN Money - 09/19/2013

    Although a majority of Americans believe a college degree is the most important factor in career success, they’re increasingly skeptical schools are doing a good enough job to prepare students, a new study conducted for Northeastern University found.

    According to the study, 62% of the people surveyed rated colleges’ efforts to prepare graduates for the economy as “poor” or “fair.” Half said the quality of preparation had declined over the last 10 to 15 years, and nearly as many said colleges aren’t in tune with today’s job market.

    Last year, a similar survey for the university showed a slight majority rated the U.S. college system as either “good” or “excellent.”
