Associations play an important role in higher education
AUGUST 30, 2016
And then comes the price tag. But with credentialing programs, MOOCs, conferences and other online offerings, associations can fill the skills gap. Try MOOCs or coding camps. When I graduated college 16 years ago, times were different. I had a job before graduation and I never questioned the value of my degree. While I had an internship, the focus then on skills (vs. education) wasn’t nearly as strong. Today, students need internships before entering the workforce.
