I was minding my business as usual on instagram and I came across this story. Nigerians and maybe some other Africans seem obsessed with degrees and accolades…we don’t seem as obsessed with solving actual real world problems. Why does one human being need so many degrees outside of saying they have them? Do you truly gain that much knowledge during the course of studying for degrees especially if you have attained a certain age and certain level of professionalism? If you have been in the business world for instance for 20 years and have accomplished a lot, what is the use of that MBA? Of what use is an MBA to a Dangote for instance? Credibility? He has already proven beyond doubt he has the knowledge and skillset to run the business..
My people share your thoughts.I still have one degree to chase and for me its simply to make me more credible as I make my career change.
