Just as the internet has revolutionized trading, it has also changed the landscape of higher education.

Jeff Brown, Dean of the Gies College of Business at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, stopped by to talk to Jeff about the state of higher education and what the future is shaping up to look like.
