The Value Of A Simple Degree

The Prospects Of A Simple Degree


Middle class Indians have a thing for Medical and Engineering degrees.Both are undoubtedly fine pursuits but the limited number of seats in good colleges means that a lot of aspirants or more particularly their parents, have to settle for lesser colleges often without the requisite faculty and infrastructure.Under these circumstances,why not consider other courses?

A simple degree from a decent college might still get you a job in the sector and company of your choice.Also as these courses are less demanding,you could find the time to explore the world more,get some work and life experience,network and maybe even build a business on the side…….Overall there is no reason to believe you will be a loser in the game of life.
