Forbes has a great article on the importance of coding and how Miami University’s Farmer School of Business has made it a required course for freshmen. The article, linked above, explains some of the benefits of learning coding such as becoming more capable of thinking computationally, improved data analysis skills and an ability to learn new computer languages more easily in the future. And, of course, coding is a skill more and more employers are demanding in new hires.
So what do you think? Will coding take its place as a required course at most universities along side liberal arts and math and science classes?
