Simply having a college degree is not enough to find a job. This is especially true in today’s job market. Having the right competencies, not the right level of education, is the key to marketability and earnings. In other words, it’s not that you study but what you study that makes the difference. From a policy perspective, colleges are rewarded for enrollment and graduation, yet very little if any attention is paid to student placement and earnings. In this session, Michael Bettersworth makes the case why degrees increasingly matter less, that competencies are the real currency, and that student success is about much more than enrollment or graduation rates. It’s also about getting a job.
