Is higher education broken? Maybe a four-year degree followed by graduate school and six figures of debt makes sense for some professions like doctors and lawyers, but what about for the rest of us?

Frequent listeners may know that Jeremy spent a bit of exile during the early months of the pandemic in Ohio, which made us really want to spotlight some of the state’s interesting entrepreneurial stories. Enter Dwight Heckelman, who founded Columbus, Ohio-based Groove U, which offers two-year diplomas in Music Industry Entrepreneurship in focal areas like Music Business, Live Sound, Interactive, and more.
Jeremy had a chance to sit down with Dwight to talk about ways in which higher education must evolve, what programs should really be judged on, and the universal value of entrepreneurial skills.
