How should higher education innovate to meet hiring managers’ expectations of university graduates?

Dan Schawbel, an expert on workplace trends and Gen Y careers, addresses these questions on episode six of For Immediate Release on Higher Education. He also delves into a recent research study he led on the future of education. According to this study, 50% of students surveyed noted that they don’t need a physical classroom, 53% believe that online colleges are reputable and
 39% view the future of education as being more virtual.

I also provide a report on the recent Gallup study on what business leaders look for in university graduates, and technology correspondent Harry Hawk’s report focuses on Iversity, a platform for MOOC courses.
