Marketplace

A study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers appears to indicate that employers are increasingly recognizing the value of liberal arts degrees, based on gains in full-time employment and pay acquired by graduates of those programs. Why is this happening? Does it mean that employers are now placing a greater value on critical thinking and writing skills? Is it a backlash against STEM?

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
