According to The Association of American Colleges and Universities, three in four employers would recommend a liberal arts education as the best way to prepare for success in today’s global economy. Employers consistently prioritize learning that involves critical thinking, oral and written communication, and complex problem solving.

Employers strongly endorse educational practices that involve students in active learning, including collaborative problem-solving, internships, research, senior projects, and community engagements. They strongly endorse practices that require applying their learning to a real-world setting.

More than four in five employers say an electronic portfolio in addition to a resume would be useful to them in ensuring that job applicants have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their company or organization.
