IT Certifications Are More Valuable Than A College Degree – The On-Premise IT Roundtable

The Premise: IT Certifications are more valuable than a college degree.

Odds are that if you’ve been in IT for a while, you’ve been asked how many certifications you have. There’s no doubt that these are valuable. Yet many IT pros still feel that they need a college degree to hang on the wall. The roundtable discusses if this is a legacy of times gone by, or if a college degree still holds a more important place than certifications. The panel includes a wide range of experiences, with IT careers build with and without degrees, as well as someone currently in college pursuing an IT career. It’s a great conversation!
