This study presented recommendations on how colleges should prepare students for success in the global economy. The report offered suggestions for integrated learning, cultural knowledge, intellectual skills, and social responsibility. The findings showed that employers emphasized students’ and graduates’ hands-on learning and abilities to put learning into practice, advising for more activities focused on this area. This provides implications for the kinds of qualities employers are looking for and the types of activities and curricula that would be useful to design to promote learning outcomes.
