Dr. Peter Diamandis is the Founder and Executive Chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation that leads the world in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions including the adult Literacy XPRIZE. He was named by Fortune Magazine as one of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.He is Executive Founder of Singularity University, a Silicon Valley institution that counsels the world’s leaders on exponentially growing technologies. (https://singularityhub.com/2019/03/22/traditional-higher-education-is-losing-relevance-heres-whats-replacing-it/ ) He recently wrote an article with, to me, the intriguing title, "Traditional Higher Education Is Losing Relevance. Here’s What’s Replacing It". What's replacing higher education MBA degrees, according to Diamandis is virtual mentorships and coaching that, he says, are here to stay.
I would be interested to hear your thoughts about this article, and whether or not mentorships and coaching, perhaps with well-designed, substantive online courses, might be a model that HSE programs should explore.
