Higher education is becoming an increasingly vital part of our lives. With more and more knowledge required to stay competitive in commerce and government, the importance of selecting good colleges has become paramount. Second rate education is not merely a problem on paper, but can hamstring the career of a student for the rest of his or her life.
Because of this, it’s important to be informed of what each school has to offer. Many universities can offer a “good” education, but getting a great education can be the difference between being a blue collar graduate with insurmountable debt, and a successful leader or contributor in Economics.
How do we do it?
Unfortunately, there is no easy metric to point to, allowing me to say, “This is the right university for you.” Many different factors go into selection of the right University to pursue a career in economics, such as location, affordability, and who or what you aspire to emulate or surpass. Following in the footsteps of a Nobel Laureate will not produce the same results or successes that studying under the people who taught business magnates will produce, and neither will necessarily engender the background needed to cross over economics into other, more specialized branches of education.
Because time is valuable, both yours and mine, I can’t afford to cover everything in an article. To address every trait in the most exacting details would mean that you’d have to slog through thousands of words of detail from each candidate, and frankly, you don’t have time for that. You have a life to attend to, a job to work at, and if you DID have the time for that kind of data sifting then you wouldn’t need the likes of me. Resultantly, this means that from University to University, the highlights of each will vary wildly, according to the best of what that school has to offer.
Staying On Top of Things
Much like anyone in the real world, I can’t merely learn once. I do research, staying on top of reports and developments in education. This lets me provide each article information that is current and accurate. I have to make efforts to stay informed. This blog is intended to keep you, the reader, informed as well, so you can make the best choices for your resources and your location in the world. I draw my information from dozens of sources, for the purpose of boiling it all down to what matters most to you, and to distill the best features of each university I select.
Education is vital. I’ve said it before, but I’m saying it again here. Success in the modern world hinges on education and self discipline. The discipline part is your responsibility, but without direction and information, you won’t know how to direct that discipline to reach your own potential. I want to share my knowledge with you, the readers, so that you too can stay informed, reach your potential, and make the choices that will propel you to success. Be in the know!
