Description

Liberal arts schools transitioning to comprehensive colleges often face growing requests from students and parents to get career outcomes (from relatively expensive educations with ballooning school loans) clearly articulated to them as early as when they initially shop for schools. This becomes an issue for faculty members because specialized career preparation and job placement often fall beyond the traditional role of career services in a liberal arts environment. Departments sometimes adjust to students' and parents' requests for better education outcomes by articulating a simplified degree completion framework, or by considering inclusion of career preparation, internships and co-ops to their programs. This presentation will explore the possibilities and challenges of adapting student advising to better address the career-preparation needs of business students as an example of attempts to deal with this growing educational challenge.
