Shaila wants to build a new education model that not only gives students the skills they need but one that also maximizes human capital potential across the board. Rather than simply letting the name of an academic institution define someone's worth Shaila hopes to build a system that maximizes value by focusing on skill based knowledge developed competencies and proven work experience.
