Fixing the Future of Higher Education with the Minerva Project ft. Ben Nelson

Play

What comes to mind when you hear the word “college”... all-nighters of cramming? keg stands and football stadiums? crippling student loan debt? 

Ben Nelson, the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Minerva Project, is demanding dramatic change in our society’s outdated and flawed higher education system. Through Minerva Schools, Ben strives to provide an Ivy League education at a fraction of the price using state-of-the-art, traveling classrooms and reformed curriculum. We discuss five critical choices universities need to make, the ghastly infrastructural costs for one student to attend, how college can assist (instead of squash) upward mobility, protecting student mental health, how education drives political behavior and more.

In this episode we talk to Ben Nelson, the Co-Founder of Lambda School. Among the wide variety of topics, we discuss the future of education, the story of Lambda School from small code bootcamp beginnings to leading educational resource, building a team, and much much more!

Lambda School is a revolutionary educational resource where students only pay a portion of their salary after they find a high paying job (over 50K annually), and the total amount charged is capped at 30K total. We talk about how the model has evolved and how this way or learning has enabled a huge group of people who wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to study programming and online skills the resources to do exactly that. Along with this fascinating and effective approach to learning, Lambda School is innovating to ensure they are being as inclusive as possible by removing as many biases to and barriers to entry that typically exists for parts of the population in the technology space. Their Summer Hackers Program is a great example of that!

Ben also had one of my favourite answers to our closing questions: "What is the best advice you've ever been given?"

Please enjoy.
