A 2013 survey conducted by the Association of American Colleges and Universities found that more than 90% of employers want colleges “to place more emphasis on helping students develop five key learning outcomes, including critical thinking, complex problem-solving, written and oral communication, and applied knowledge in real-world settings.”
