More bootcamps are quietly coming to a university near you
EdSurge - 08/02/2017
Sean Gallagher, the executive director of the Center for the Future of Higher Education & Talent Strategy at Northeastern University, says the university approach to bootcamp has a unique leg-up to its for-profit industry counterparts. But that doesn’t make them immune to the same fate.
“Universities are more conservative and stable [than for-profit schools], and that’s what comes from accreditation and outside quality assurance,” he says. “But just because it’s offered at a university doesn’t mean [the bootcamp model] will be successful… it remains to be seen.”
