Grads of Life’s Dismissed by Degrees Report Featured In Washington Post

We are honored to share that Dismissed By Degrees, our joint study with Harvard Business School and Accenture on degree inflation, was recently featured in an article by The Washington Post.

The article discusses ways that degree inflation is "making the U.S. labor market more inefficient,". Degree inflation hampers companies from finding the talent they need to grow and prosper and hinders Americans from accessing jobs that provide the basis for a decent standard of living.

According to the Washington Post, “The cost of college is crippling so many borrowers, it’s time to concede that, for many jobs in America, experience should matter just as much as a college degree.”

Since we published the report, the article notes, top U.S. companies including Google, Apple, and Starbucks have removed four-year degree requirements for entry-level and middle-skilled jobs.
