Some thoughts and opinions based on the Webucator.com blog To College or Not to College – the Million Dollar Question, written by Dave Dunn
In the 1990’s, MBA’s were all the rage, costing upwards of $100,000 in promise of guaranteed job placement and higher earnings. Fast forward 15 years and those who invested likely made no significant gain up the corporate ladder, nor are financially more well off than a well experience bachelor degree-earning employee. Why? Corporations are looking for real-life experience and skill, not something learned in a lecture hall based on theory. Yes, theory is a good basis, but it is not practical application.
