    Podcast #449: Faster and Cheaper Alternatives to College

    Every year the cost of a four-year college degree goes up, forcing young people to take on massive amounts of student debt for an education that often doesn’t even prepare them well for the jobs of today. My guest today argues that there’s a better, cheaper, and faster way to prepare for gainful employment.

    His name is Ryan Craig, he’s the Managing Director of University Ventures, an investment firm reimagining the future of higher education, and the author of A New U: Faster + Cheaper Alternatives to College. We begin our conversation discussing the disconnect between a college education and the job skills employers are looking for and why higher ed continues to get more expensive each year. Ryan then digs into alternative education models that include boot camps, income-share programs, and apprenticeships that are not only faster and more affordable than college, but also put an emphasis on real-life job skills.

    Thanks for the tip. I used to listen to the AoM podcast religiously, but have fallen off the wagon - looking forward to hearing this episode.

    I loved being a university student and I've spent the last ~ 20 years working at universities, but I think the tide is changing. As a product, the bachelor degree is increasingly looking like a relic from the past. Where is the ability to learn at your own pace, to mix and match and combine to suit your needs? In many areas, I it makes so much more sense for someone who is self-motivated to pick up the skills they need and demonstrate proficiency through producing and creating value, rather than an expensive certificate to pin on the wall.

    I think KahnAcademy is the best online education platform right now.
