Mom I’m going to Google University

How would you like a degree from Google University? The search giant is acting as much a virtual school than any other virtual school these days with Google Career Certificates.

You cannot obtain a formal degree, but you can take career-specific courses with credentials in as little as six months. These are mostly technology-aimed jobs, which Google will gladly benefit from by hiring people it trained with skills it needs.

It’s quite brilliant when you think about it. There are plenty of talented people who cannot afford the inflated price of an American university who would easily qualify for skilled jobs if someone were willing to give them the skills. Google has realized that they don’t care if you went to college and took 18th Century Italian poetry to be a good programmer. They care if you can do the job they need, and they’ll give you the skills to do so.
