Over half of all four-year graduates in the class of 2012 were jobless or underemployed. Many returned home with significant student loan debt and limited prospects for repayment. And yet there are over 3.5 million job openings today. Houston, we have a problem, and it’s not that too few people are going or graduating from college. It’s that too many are not finding a job afterwards. Legislators are taking note, and new accountability standards are on the way to higher education. It is time for a serious and honest look at how we define student success beyond the classroom. If you don’t, someone surely will for you, and soon. In this session, participants will take away tools and techniques for addressing the employability gap in higher education through real-time market analysis, high-fidelity curriculum alignment, embedded talent pipelines, earnings and placement metrics, and the front-lines of outcomes funding.
