In an interview with University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dr. Nelson C. Baker, dean of Georgia Tech Professional Education, shares his vision for universities' role in lifelong learning.
"Delivering value to the learner is always first and foremost. That means offering the same rigorous, high-quality education online as we offer on campus and making it affordable. Market research and employer input is essential to ensure that we’re offering education that addresses challenges in the workforce. At Georgia Tech, offering online degrees at-scale enables us to serve greater needs, such as addressing industry skills gaps and providing opportunities learners would not otherwise have had."
