Incorporating bootcamps within our degree programs

Do we need to consider incorporating bootcamps within our existing degree programs?

Reported by MarketWatch, many coding bootcamps are designed to quickly provide the practical skills to secure a good paying job.

And many higher education degree programs focus on graduating well-rounded individuals, but potentially lacking on some hyper-practical entry level skills. So much so that organizations are taking advantage of this skills gap to offer these bridge training programs and make college graduates more hirable.

The takeaway? Should that be higher ed’s job? Can we incorporate more practical skills into our degree programs so that we’re graduating students the world is excited to hire?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
