from the Times Union on 1/8/16 – China has a workforce problem. It’s got too many college graduates and not enough high quality, skilled workers.
As education reformers work to solve the problem, SUNY Cobleskill has stepped in with a way to help from abroad.
The small agricultural university has agreed to grant bachelor’s degrees to Chinese citizens who graduate a three-year vocational program in China and go on to take two years’ worth of credits at Cobleskill’s 900-acre campus in the Schoharie Valley. SUNY claims the partnership, called the Path Pro Program, is the first of its kind in the United States.
