How Much is that Degree Worth?
MindSumo is in the news again today as Yahoo! Finance recently re-published CNBCs article What’s the Worth of an Ivy League Degree?. MindSumo’s President, our very own Keaton Swett, was quoted in regards to the schools MindSumo is currently available at:
“There’s a huge wealth of untapped potential,“ said Swett. "If you’re at a school that doesn’t have name recognition, but your skills are equivalent (to students at a top-tier university), we want to give you a chance to compete for a job and get noticed and looked at by the top tech companies.”
The article itself goes into detail about the comparative value of having an Ivy League degree, degree from another college, or no degree at all. The piece parallels the story of Gurbaksh Chahal who has sold two companies and started a third despite lacking a college degree, and statistics that show Ivy Leaguer-founded companies post greater profits and more overall hires.
Ivy League or not, our MindSumo student-solvers are turning in quality solutions at an incredible rate. Everyone deserves to be noticed, and we will continue to be a platform for students to put their work on display.
