One likely reason is that many MBAs enroll in business school after having spent several years in the professional workforce, often in such lucrative fields as finance or management consulting. Some MBAs also get assistance with tuition from their employers, though company sponsorship of employee education is said to be waning. The upshot is that many MBAs seem to have saved enough to partially offset the cost of their education. That's probably less true of people studying to be lawyers, doctors, or college professors. From 2007 to 2012, the average cost of MBA tuition increased by more than a third, as my colleague Erin Zlomek reported last week.
Is going to college really worth it? There is no doubt about it, the rising cost of tuition in this country is making college a worse and worse deal for American students. The college costs are rising faster than health care or gas prices in most cases students tend to say that if a teacher has a top student, he or she is the one who gets good grades. However, according to Education Sector, a non-profit education think tank, only 57 percent of bachelor degree students graduate in six years. Colleges restrict young people’s lives because after college they have debt of $50,000 or more to repay due to student loans.
It would take away funds from the school, but think of how much colleges rake in a year in sales! The price of attending a public four-year college has risen 27% percent beyond inflation over the past five years. I believe they should be paid. Athletes should be paid to play sports because it is extremely hard to juggle school and a very demanding sport. It will take away funds, but think how much colleges are making per year from students!
Today’s Bachelor Degree is the High School Diploma of 30 Years Ago Today’s Bachelor Degree is the High School Diploma of 30 Years Ago A college degree is not just a nice-to-have but it is has become a necessity. Employers are not looking at the resumes with the minimum high school diploma but are moving straight to the candidates with college degrees. Thirty years ago it was not unusual to graduate from high school, find a job, get married, buy house, start a family and live happily ever after. The job market has changed so much that high school graduates are just able to make minimum wage. Technology has changed the way we work and demands skilled employees.

Commutation is a vital part of a successful business. Lee Lacocoa a successful business man and author of “where have all the leaders gone?” once said, “You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can't get them across, your ideas won't get you anywhere.” Meet Juan a 23 year old Hispanic native.

Elderly People and Student Loan Debt After years of studying and working so hard to get the best possible grades one can get, it is expected for someone to be ecstatic once they have graduated from college and earned their degree, however the majority of the time this not the case. They are far from being happy because the student knows that even though they have just conquered the steep hill that is college, they know that there is a mountain of debt right behind it. Almost immediately after students are done with school they are faced with the reality of having to pay back every dime they borrowed while in college, not to mention the interest rate that is added to that total as time goes by. But student-loan debt is not just a problem for young individuals looking for their first job. It is increasingly affecting older folks that decide to go back to college.
You could be quickly earning thousands of dollars, while at the same time reducing the high unemployment rate. These college graduates could be doing this without working for hours daily to make a couple of hundred dollars. The old theory was that you should go to school, then college and get a job. Well is this working for them? Nope.
For example, an average American person who have been through high school for four years decides to major in Computer Programming which is a tough major in many aspects. So he graduates from college after he has done his classes with a bachelor’s degree. This qualifies him now to look for a good job. He finds himself stuck because the job he found turned out to require higher grade point average than his current one: As a result, he has to look for a lower income job and not have this successful life that he has dreamed of. In another case, Barbara Ehrenreich in “Serving inFlorida” embarks on an experiment to experience living a low-wage life.
College is too expensive for the middle-class man to afford. This can cause massive amounts of debts in student loans, smart students lowering their academic standards in order to attend a state university or community college, and even students choosing to join the work force out of high school instead of pursuing a degree. This is not a knock on community college or state schools but when a student can excel at a school like Harvard and has to instead go to Slippery Rock, the education system is
