HomeeducationIs spending $200,000 getting you a quality education?

After I finished my Master degree my father said I needed to go after my Ph.D. I said, “No thanks, too much theory and not enough action.”

My dad was disappointed, for sure, but not getting a Ph.D. has not stopped my from learning and getting more education from books and mentoring from experts.

So, when I saw this video about getting an education and what a college graduate gets for their $200,000 debt, I thought I have to share this with others.

  1. My dad didn’t want me to go for a Phd- after all, i’d spent 6 years at university so was fast becomming institutionalised. I was offered one and would gladly go back now, some 20 years later, having founded my own businesses and worked for a living. However, if it wasn’t for working all these years, I wouldn’t have the confidence and maturity to do a Phd in the first place. I think a Masters is pretty much enough for most of us.

    • I’m not opposed to College, but I am questioning the value of most college degrees. The sciences and some other degrees (medicine, law, engineering, etc.) are still worthy, but some of others are probably not worth it. As I learned and commented in my book, sometimes starting your own business the just in time learning working with big businesses you get an real time MBA.
