Outcomes

Experts agree that in today’s complex, constantly changing world, graduates need more than simply a college degree. They must acquire a set of skills that will help them enhance their personal and professional lives throughout their entire career.

GDA Integrated Services, a marketing and research firm specializing in higher education, reports the following:

  • More than 75% of employers say strong thinking and reasoning skills are very important in an employee who graduated from college.
  • 66% of employers seek college graduates who write and speak effectively.
  • 63% look for college graduates who demonstrate problem-solving skills.
  • One out of three say an employee must have an interest in exploring new ideas.

Furthermore, Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) confirms that a liberal arts education that is integrated with all fields of endeavor – from business and professional programs to the arts and sciences – provides the foundation that is necessary for students to expand their horizons, build an understanding of a wider world, hone analytical and communications skills, and foster responsibilities beyond self.

Susquehanna University and the Sigmund Weis School of Business are committed to producing well-rounded graduates who have these skills and are prepared to achieve, lead, and serve in the 21st century.
