We do things differently here
Many American universities aren't meeting the needs of the professions. A 2015 study found that 64 percent of employers felt that graduates didn’t possess the full set of skills and knowledge they needed for success in entry-level positions. Moreover, only 25 percent felt that colleges are adequately preparing their students for the challenges of the global economy.
Quinnipiac is a rare exception. We deliver a set of market-tested learning outcomes specifically focused on preparing our graduates for career success. We integrate practice and theory. We offer programs that accelerate and combine degrees. We create opportunities for primary research, service learning and study abroad. Our online university is a model for how to educate students who are busy gaining experience in the workplace. In developing essential knowledge and skills for the workplace, our approach works, and research backs us up.
