The Futurist: The Education Disruption : 2015
Hence, the superstar of the modern age is not the person with the best degree, but rather the person who acquires the most new skills with the greatest alacrity, and the person with the most adaptable skillset. [...] (Moody's has already downgraded the outlook of the entire US higher education industry).
