The Shai Reshef talks on higher education describe why accessible post-secondary schooling is so important. The educational entrepreneur founded the University of the People, a non-profit educational institution that aims to make a college degree attainable to anyone, anywhere as long as they have access to the internet.
The Israeli business man received his own degree from the University of Michigan in Chinese politics. From 1989 to 2005 the speaker worked as the CEO and later Chairman of the Kidum Group. Beginning in 2004 while he still acted as Chairman, Reshef chaired KIT eLearning (a partner of the University of Liverpool). The first online university outside of the US provides IT MBAs and M.Scs. This was before Reshef founded the University of the People in 2009. As evidenced by the Shai Reshef talks, the skilled speaker also speaks professionally all over the world.
