“On December 5, 2011, results of a survey commissioned by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) were released during a panel discussion at the National Press Club. The findings showed that many hiring decision-makers believe that the post-secondary education system could do a better job preparing students for the workplace. The study, conducted by FTI Consulting, surveyed 1,006 professionals who make hiring decisions representing various industries in the United States on whether job applicants have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the workplace.”
