Better Than Going Back to School?

By Marty Nemko

Thinking about a back-to-school stint? Before spending the time and bucks on State U, consider You U: a self-designed mix of mentorships, workshops, tapes, and articles. You learn what you want, from whom you want, when you want. Worried that employers will laugh at a You U education? One of my clients included this in his job applications:
I believe I'm worth a look BECAUSE I don't have an M.B.A. Having heard that most people use little of what they learned in graduate school, I decided to go outside the box and craft a more useful education. (INSERT WHAT YOU DID AT YOU U.) But now comes the moment of truth. I believe I prioritized substance over form, but will you interview me?

It often works.
