When asked what they believe would be most helpful for a high school graduate to launch a career, Americans overwhelmingly recommend an internship at Google (60%) over a degree from Harvard (40%). This latest finding from research I led at Kaplan (conducted by QuestResearch Group) is based on a survey of 2,000 U.S. adults conducted in December. It says an awful lot about the state of affairs in higher education today. For many, it will be hard to fathom that an internship from a highly admired global company wins out over a full degree from a world-renowned university. But it comes as no surprise when viewed through the lens of the many public opinion studies done on higher education over the past several years.
