Ryan Craig has a humble vision. He wants to disrupt higher education by promoting online degree programs that unbundle course offerings to offer a true bottom line return for the majority of students in terms of graduation, employment, and wages.
He leads the investment firm University Ventures, the only such firm focused on higher education. In our conversation Ryan details the changes that American higher education will undergo, including the transformation from packaged courses and degrees to truly unbundled course offerings, along with those that it will not.
Ryan also talks about what academics can be doing themselves to prepare for the massive transformations coming. And we should be ready — he thinks the next five years will bring changes that sound like science fiction today.
