I had an amazing conversation with Denise Cope, the Founder and President of Affordable Degrees Abroad on the issues that the higher education system in the United States is facing today. It was so interesting to know about how she has come to this journey and how she is advocating for change in the system to help families and students. Denise’s mission is to help find affordable, quality degree options abroad and then find tools to succeed. And this is what was totally reflected in our conversation today.
