Hi you guys,
It depend very much on society where you are staying & education system of each country. It is normal to see the topic raised by a member from Vietnam. By culture, Vietnamese especially old generation only find honorable when there children are degreed. Conjunction with this, the business environment are not so as developed & "opened" as others western countries, therefore the chance by opportunistics is not so high. The reality that Vietnam education system does not give students enough information of job orientation, so they find no way to "enter the life safely" without entering university.
I do not think this topic is a much concerned in such countries like United Stated or UK, where business enviorenment has already been a battle. The wiser, the faster, the more opportunistics are the winner. There are so many successful people who have never finished their university.
