A NEW U
Faster and Cheaper Alternatives to College
By Ryan Craig. Provide students with a road map to groundbreaking programs that lead to great jobs in growing sectors without the hefty price tag of a traditional four-year degree. This forward-looking volume presents the idea that a college degree does not have to be a prerequisite for professional success and outlines attractive alternatives such as bootcamps, income-share programs, apprenticeships, and staffing models. The author asserts that a traditional college experience is great for some, but for others, an alternative option can lead to greater choice, better matches with employers, and higher return on investment of cost and time. Includes a directory of programs and courses. Grades 9–12. Index. Appendix. Bibliography. Glossary. BenBella. 300 pages. ©2018.
