Today, adults considering going back to school—whether to complete their bachelor’s program or enhance their resume with a graduate degree—have more options than ever before.
The array of choices is a terrific benefit, but it can lead to a baffling and confusing decision-making process and a real test of your patience and perseverance—all before you enter a
classroom. And what should you expect when you do return to school? It can be an intimidating experience for the returning student.
 
Dr. Dani demystifies the process in The Adult Student, an inside look at higher education from the perspective of an award-winning professor who has taught at both traditional and
online institutions for more than 15 years. In researching the book, Dr. Dani interviewed hundreds of hiring managers for their insights on what they look for in adult graduates, which
schools they think highly of - and which they do not. She also interviewed hundreds of professors, current students and recent graduates, asking them the hard questions about higher
education. She shares their answers with you in this book.
 
Dr. Dani has a candid, fresh and forthright perspective on education, from deciding where to enroll to building a network and staying connected after graduation. She’ll equip you with all
the information you need to pick the right program for you and, with dozens of useful tips gleaned from her own career and contributed by her colleagues, you will be confident and set up
for success the moment you enter the traditional—or virtual—classroom. 

 Dr. Dani tells it like it is, and gives readers an authentic perspective as she compares the many options available to students today, empowering them to make the best possible choice
as they navigate the modern world of education.

From the Author:

Dani Babb, PhD, MBA

Founder and President of The Babb Group
Author, Professor, Television Commentator

If you have picked up this book, you may be well on your way to deciding whether or not to go back to school! Congratulations - you have taken the first step
towards investing in yourself with something that no one can take away from you. A tool that will help you market yourself going forward, engage in a new career,
advance in an existing one, start a business, change professions, model to your children that you value education (and yourself), build self-confidence and your
own skill set and knowledge. Yes, as you can tell, I am a big fan of education. I have devoted my second post-Information Technology (IT) career to engaging with
students and professors to guide them in their quest to make their goals and dreams become reality. The fact is, today many of us do not get to go to school at
""traditional times"", or may find that we need a degree to maintain our competitiveness or move up in our field. I earned one of my degrees in a traditional state
school, another in a private evening program, and another online. I have been an on ground and online professor since the early 1990s during a career in IT and
after, when education became my only career. My roots in online education go back to the beta version of Blackboard. I have published many books on education
and business, and I share my wins and losses openly. I am forthright and candid in my approach to business and education, knowing that mentoring is useless
without it. My company, The Babb Group, is an educational consulting company focusing on helping students and professors make informed decisions.

That is my goal with this book - that you will walk away and know clearly whether you can and should go to school now, how to pick whether to go to school in an online
or on ground format, and where to attend. Hundreds of professors and students shared in the journey along the way and offered their input and critique, criticism and
suggestions, most of which I incorporated into this book. I am a Professor of Economics for American Military University and teach as an adjunct at other schools,
working with students from associates level programs to doctoral programs. I teach economics, technology, statistics, business, management, and other practical
subjects. I earned my Doctorate in 2004 and my MBA in 1999. I am an analyst and commentator for cable and local news channels - FoxNews, Fox Business, MSNBC,
NBC, CNN, Bloomberg and others. My pledge is to offer a unique perspective to educate consumers and students on what is taking place in the market, and to offer a
fresh look for people on Main Street where analysis really counts. All of the data in the world doesn't matter if we don't know what it means. This is my approach to
educating consumers, and I hope you find this to be a useful approach in this book as well. I co-authored the first mainstream book about online education called
Make Money Teaching Online with Dr. Jim Mirabella in 2006, and this book is a natural progression from the educator side into the student side.

On a personal note, I am a workaholic and love analyzing markets and data, studying biology and medicine for fun, memorizing statistics and playing with new gadgets -
particularly those that baffle friends who come into my home and cannot figure out how to turn the lights on anymore (and need a secret code to do it, even better!). I would
describe myself as an antiestablishmentarianist who enjoys challenging the status quo and doesn't do things ""just because they've always been done that way."" I love
people and their unique personalities and goals; I love the thrill of life – of success - and all the ups and downs that go with it. I sure prefer the ups but learn the most from
the downs! I enjoy political strategy, travel, working out, healthy banter, fashion, wit, a great belly laugh, and providing for my daughter - oh, and carbon fiber. :) That just might
be an obsession.
I live in Southern California and New York City with my two year old daughter; a nice blend of fast-paced and chill - though I far prefer the Big Apple to the retirement state of
California. I have been very fortunate to be able to travel around the world, and have had the opportunity to meet many amazing people. I have visited most states and many
countries, and stay on the road as often as my daughter and career allow. Most of all, I am grateful for wonderful and loving friends and family and I am committed to the
success of our clients and readers.

Please stay in touch, whether by email, or social media. We have a lot of groups out there to support you from your initial decision all the way through graduation and beyond.

I'd love to hear from you.

My best wishes in your new pursuits,

Dani
