Colleges are expensive and inefficient, failing to prepare business students for jobs in the real world

College tuition has been rising 2.5x faster than inflation over the past four decades in the US. Today, the average four-year college education costs over $100,000, forcing students to take on significant debt before entering the workforce. For many people, a business degree is viewed as the only path to land an entry level job in a coveted business field, only to then realize that professional success has little to do with one's academic background.
