Is College Worth It? Re-bundling Higher Education

Half of Gen Zers believe they can be successful without a four-year degree, but 85% still think it’s necessary. Prospective students need to know: will a degree lead me to the job I want or should I look at other pathways? Over a decade into ‘unbundling’ higher education, it’s time to repackage college education and career preparation into programs that maximize students’ return on the time and money they invest in college. This panel will explore models and principles to give students answers.
