The seamless transition from the liberal arts to professional preparation helps students complete their education more quickly and accelerates their entry into a career. Why is this important? It can reduce education costs and student loan debt, for one. But it also provides grads with an extra year of earning power, as well as chances for better jobs and increased salary earlier in their careers.
