Don’t Go To College Without Being Clear Why You’re Going

By Tom Vander Ark

After Yale, Michael Horn thought about law school, but gained admission to Harvard Business School. He’s thought a lot about that process and how it shaped his life. His new book, Choosing College, unpacks all the reasons people go to college and offers advice to college seekers and operators.

Horn had the good fortune to be sitting in the second row of Clayton Christensen’s innovation course when he asked if anyone wanted to co-author a book on Kindergarten through 12th grade—and the foresight to visit him after class to volunteer. Two years later, Disrupting Class was published. Ten years later, we all talk about disruptive innovation (as if we understood it).
