Is business school a good choice to attend after college?

I plan to major in Econ or Finance and hopefully work on Wall St. one day. Is it worth paying for additional education to get my MBA or is going straight into the work force a good choice? #business #finance #education #higher-education...

I'm graduating from college in a few months with a 2.6 GPA in Bachelor of Arts in Biology. I've decided to try to go to Nursing School at this point. What should I do to increase my chances of getting in? Is it likely that I would be accepted?

When I graduated from high school I set my goal to go into dentistry. Throughout my undergraduate years I've struggled with keeping my grades up. The main reason why is because after seeing how much I struggled with just passing my first semester of college, I immediately started doubting that...

Hi! My name is Anina and I'm a high school senior interning at CareerVillage. I've started talking to my friends and classmates about graduate school, and the costs/benefits of getting a higher degree. In your opinion, do the benefits outweigh the costs? Does having a higher degree give you...

My dream career is to manage and operate a Theme Park. Although I am well aware that this will require some work in existing amusement park contexts, I am uncertain whether it would be best to first attend four years of college and graduate with a business management degree in hospitality...

When choosing colleges, should ranking be valued over opportunities and experiences.

I am currently in the process of applying to colleges, and will probably be studying business. Within business school rankings, RI am seriously considering two schools. However, business, in my opinion, is a very experience-based subject. I believe that despite your education quality and level,...

Is it true that balancing wisdom and knowledge really contributes to a strong character?

I read an article on Forbes called "Why Most People Will Never Achieve The American Dream" and the writer mentioned that many leaders "don't balance knowledge (the head) and wisdom (the heart)." And it's not just what you know it's what you DO with what you know. #business #management...

Is metacognition and right brain learning starting to revolutionize the way we think about learning and how we teach kids in school?

Sometimes I wonder if schools tend to favor left-brain dominant children. I think through images, I like theories, I'm intuitive, and I have no sense of time. (But I'm time sensitive). #psychology #education...
