Outdated and perishable theories taught in college are becoming of disservice to today’s digital student.
Is the degree worth the debt?
A 2020 study at Kaplan showed that Americans would rather have an internship at Google (60%) over a degree from Harvard (40%). And only 13% of U.S. adults, 11% of C-level executives, and 6% of university trustees think college graduates have work-ready skills.

Skip the Degree is the answer to building real, market-ready skills in today’s digital age. All formats go live on Amazon February 10, 2021.
