Topic: Business

Question: Which is closer to the truth?

(A) American higher education is in a freefall, with most colleges and universities poised to be disrupted into oblivion by boot camps and made irrelevant by roboticization.

(B) American higher education remains the envy of the world, home to many of the best universities attracting the finest scholars and students on the planet. 
Answer: Both are caricatures, and the reality is that higher education is not nearly as broken as many critics suggest nor as viable as many college leaders pretend.

In this engaging and challenging think tank, we will move past the simple narratives and provide a sophisticated look at the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the U.S. postsecondary ecosystem.
