Panelist Profile: Mike Adams, MissionU

Portrait of Mike AdamsMike Adams is the Chief Product Officer and co-founder of MissionU, where he is responsible for curricular, pedagogical and technological development. Mike will be part of a lively panel on “alternative credentials” and how they complement or compete with degrees.

MissionU bills itself as “Education for the 21st Century” and its mission is to offer an educational alternative to degrees that focuses on skill building and job placement. Indeed, MissionU does not earn any tuition or fees from students until they are placed in a well paying job. How many colleges would offer that deal? That is an alternative education model that just might put a big dent in the higher education debt crisis.

We hope you join us to hear Mike and other terrific speakers at the Saylor Higher Education Summit on June 21-22, 2017, in Washington, DC.
