Many people would argue current education needs a reboot, I totally agree and online education has the answer to it. It is democratic, one can avail anywhere anytime.
There are many organizations whether non-profits or for-profits have been using the internet have actively helping individuals and organizations either through YouTube, EdTech platforms, or throw Zoom. The majority of them help in tutoring kids, and preparing for competitive exams, entrance exams, or skill-based training programs.
It has impacted the lives of millions of students one shining example is Khan Academy.
There are examples of entrepreneurs who are college dropouts who have created global corporations such as Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg ….
But later these corporations are managed by University educated professionals…Hence, there will be a need for qualified individuals and professionals.
Over the years, the cost of university education, especially in the US, has skyrocketed and this has resulted in many shying away from enrolling in a degree program for fear of student loans.
This has led to a shortage of qualified individuals and millions of individuals stuck up in their careers. Some challenged their situations and started their businesses but many couldn’t take risks due to their circumstances.
How education helps:
According to various research conducted by various organizations such as indeed.com . Income for undergraduates is greater than a 40% increase compared to an associate degree. Besides improved earning potential, it equips an individual with a larger range of soft skills such as communication, teamwork, and critical thinking, resulting in growth for the professionals. The earnings increase from the bachelor’s level to the master’s level is approximately 20% (Indeed, 2021).
Education helps in an increase in remuneration, higher disposable, job security, retirement, and health benefits, and helps in ownership of the home.
An educated workforce helps increase the talent pool for organizations. Helps in reducing downtime & loss, creates innovation, helps in the expansion of business, and achieves goals & profit.
In general, education — as a critical component of a country’s human capital — increases the efficiency of each individual worker and helps economies to move up the value chain beyond manual tasks or simple production processes (WEF 2016).
As an immigrant, I saw the advantage that I had, as I had two Masters’s degrees from India, which I earned without high student debt. In-fact, I could pay the tuition on my own, without taking help from my parents or family or student loans. So, when I compared this with my fellow Americans I had an advantage in that I didn’t have high student loans.
I felt the need to do something for my fellow Americans, hence the idea of RiseBack inspired by the Native American saying “To rise like a phoenix from the ashes”. I thought of leveraging technology and connecting American students & professionals with globally recognized Indian universities. So, they can take the same advantage, which I had to pursue my Undergraduate & Graduate degree programs and achieve their personal and professional goals.

Indian Universities over the years created super successful alumni who are heads of Fortune 500 companies, Noble Laureates, Scientists, Academicians, IT Professionals, Serial Entrepreneurs & investors.
