Business and employment are undergoing radical change, but higher education remains static, mired in the past. As such, says Danny Iny, the CEO of an online business education company, college may prove to be a losing wager for some young people. Many of them, he contends, would do much better pursuing nontraditional learning programs. And that is his line of work; he specializes in providing educational opportunities to people who want to gain useful knowledge and skills. Iny re-examines higher education and offers advice – some of it controversial – to learners, educators and businesses. Executives and HR officials responsible for hiring new employees can benefit from discussing the pros and cons of his take on higher education. At the end of each chapter, Iny includes “learning self-assessment” exercises readers can use to test their understanding of the ideas he presents. This makes it a useful workbook for students and professionals. Lifelong learners, prospective college students and learning professionals will find food for thought in Iny's contrarian overview. 

In this summary, you will learn

  • Why traditional higher education no longer works for some young people, 
  • What worthwhile alternatives exist and
  • What strategies will help you use the six layers of “leveraged learning.”

Summary

“The Six Layers of Leveraged Learning”

Conventional higher education is broken. It costs too much and is inefficient and ineffective, except for the most select, prestigious universities, and for professions such as law, medicine, accounting, engineering and architecture.
