Nice post. I have a degree in Mathematical Science from Queen Mary University of London. At first I thought it was a waste of time however I now find that some of the things I learnt at the university have come to use. Great post, thanks for sharing.

Education is a great investment in oneself. And with the skyrocketing costs of “normal brick-and-mortar” education…going the online route is a fanstastic decision. Online education is slowly but surely coming of age. And what better degree than an MBA…yes the market maybe saturated with MBA’s…but the skills you gain there-in are crucial and marketable…if you know how to package yourself 🙂 Or start your own venture.
