You sound like a downer. Just because YOU went to school and worked and never reaped the benefits doesn't mean that others can't. Last time I checked, some of the richest people in the world hold degrees in business and finance (I'm working towards a BBA in Finance, I plan to go for my MBA). Not all the wealthy people of the world are college graduates though. Even Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg were drop-outs.
But in the end, it's about what you DO with the knowledge that matters...not so much the knowledge itself.
dude im bout to get my bba in finance in less than a year. i guarentee i won't find a job greater than 40k max. u figure theres about 100,000 other kids with the same degree as u trying to make the most money like u, take that competitive analysis in consideration then you will realize there isn't going to be many jobs that are going to spotlight you. the job market is bad for any financial sector. for one sectors are always getting closed down when firms lose money. i don't plan on making money through work though, i got bigger ideas. a MBA will boost your salary to about 80k.
