Is a College Degree Worthless?

By Jack Hough, SmartMoney

College degrees bring higher income, but at today's cost they can't make up the savings they consume and the debt they add early in the life of a typical student.

  1. Sometimes, we need a basic degree for any employment in the market...master and PhD is optional...

    Thats why we need scholarship or if your parents are rich enough then ok...

    Are you feeling like losing to education?

  2. I feel like the article is right. Education is not completely worthless, yet it doesn't justify time and money needed to get a degree. And, yes, most people just need to learn how to read and write and that's about it.

  3. Doctoral Nursing Programs


    Doctoral nursing programs are offered primarily by large universities. DNP programs are often designed to allow students to continue working while attending the program. They sometimes concentrate classroom time into two-week segments or into long weekends supplemented with online instruction and can be completed in a year or two. PhD programs usually take between three and five years of full-time study to complete and include involvement in research projects and completion of a dissertation. Students are typically required to attend full-time.

  4. i had worked for 4 years after my masters degree. i was so week inront of the bosses who where below academic degree and no criteria for treating the employees, masters or bachelors in the market does not offer us any respect when dealing with owners. BUT when you hold a phd degree, then you are able atleast to teach at universities, research centers, or work as a consultant for big companies , all there you will meet decent persons and academic ones and ther you will find a good pace for respect, self confidence and also you will be the boss of yourself, you can teach here and there for courses....

  5. Great post and discussion. I definitely would not discount the usefulness of a decent business program. A PhD program just makes it more powerful, simply by adding potential. Like any other degree, it's not a promise, it's a possibility. Thiago | http://synergyquest.net
