184: An Open Marketplace Inspires Choice - with Mathew Jacobson, Founder, Ducere Global Business School

Welcome back to America's leading higher education podcast! This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #60. In this episode, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we welcome Mathew Jacobson, Founder, Ducere Global Business School! Mat talks to us about how Ducere is working to create the most industry-relevant degrees anywhere in the world.  They are designed with hundreds of world leaders providing input into the curriculum and relevance in the marketplace.  The practical-based education is delivered in conjunction with some of the biggest organizations in the world, which makes the Ducere model unique.  Mat also discusses how HUGE of an issue cost is in the United States - Ducere is offering British-based degrees for a total of 14K!  As more students consider an education online, the marketplace becomes more open and choices for the student become more intentional.  It is always fascinating to hear from how those operating outside of the U.S. view U.S. Higher Ed - don't miss this discussion.

He is a regular media contributor on topics of business, innovation, and entrepreneurship, including articles in Wealth Creator, Marketing Magazine, Business First, Smart Magazine, Start-Up Smart, and Business Builders.  As founder of the Ducere Foundation, fully funded by Ducere, Mat works in close partnerships with sovereign states, major universities, philanthropic leaders, and major businesses to deliver educational programs across 12 African countries.
