Access to higher education and knowledge are no longer just for the chosen few. Has the college degree become a commodity? Is an MBA worth it? Is a Ph.D. worth it? In the digital age, the college degree does not guarantee success. There may be a higher education bubble and it will eventually burst. You don’t want to miss today's show!
