Podcast: Choosing College

FutureU features Bob Moesta, who is the co-author of Choosing College with host Michael Horn. He and Horn discuss what they learned through various interviews about why students select schools.

Moestra explains, “When we start to talk about value and affordability, the aspect here is value is only in the eyes of the beholder. So a school can say it is worth a million dollars but the fact is, at some point, who is willing to pay a million dollars? And this is the big thing to me we found, where does value lie?”
