Meeting the Needs of Information-Age Employers.
Wallace, Steven R.
Community College Journal, v69 n6 p21-22 Jul 1999
The author argues that in a knowledge-based economy, the associate degree does not provide significant professional and economic opportunities for students. A new practitioner-oriented applied baccalaureate degree that emphasizes the competencies demanded in today's business environment should be developed by the community colleges, with the input of employers and legislators.
