So college or business school might be a good option free. You have to know yourself, know your strengths and then adjust. My 1st 2 years, I attended a community college and I had to maintain a 4.0 to transfer into the business going. Now, out of thousands that applied to this business school, only 100 transfers got in every year. Instead of the business school truly valuing what it means to be a successful business person, they base your soul worth on G p A. In extracurriculars. So instead of being curious to what I was doing for the business world, my grade in a geology class was more important to get me into the school. The 1st 2 years of school I took, you know, a few economics classes, a few accounting classes, but mostly I was taking Texas government U. S. Government classes that I had already taken in high school. So it's obvious that business is gonna be a completely different climate from when you first joined college, too, when you lied because it's a four year degree, and a lot can happen in four years. So instead of making a business degree filled with a bunch of useless geology class, is all these electives that don't even apply to the major. Why not just make a business degree 18 months pack in all the important classes that you need to know about business and then send you out in the real world? Oh, that's right, because the primary goal of colleges or to make money. My whole geology class was just learning the material and taking tests. So guess what? Yeah, I had to take a whole semester worth of learning about rocks, but I didn't retain most of the information because the way the system is set up is that you download the information into your head, memorize it for an exam, and then go on to the next material without truly retaining that knowledge. That's not how you really learn that surface level retention you if you like. Even with these flaws, college tuition is rising. For example, if one of our grandparent's you know, someone in the baby boomer generation decided they wanted to get a college degree, they wanted to go to business school. See, nowadays everyone has a degree because the access of federal loans has allowed many people to go get the college degree. There's even articles that explain that nowadays a degree is the equivalent of a high school diploma didn't why our tuition rates inflating at such a high percentage? There was an article I read recently that said, In the past 10 to 15 years, household income has only risen 20% but college tuition has inflated way over 100%. Colleges all around the U. S are taking advantage of the consumer because they know that anyone can go out and get federal loans to pay for the tuition. Maurin Maur Every year you really want to know how you can learn about business? Look at the business of college. If you actually look into how most colleges use their tuition money, you'll probably be pretty surprised. Basically, this is a business class that teaches you about the ins and outs of computers. To be honest, college cannot keep up with the invention of Google. You need to embrace failure because you learn for failing, you learn from your mistakes. Classes in business school discouraged failure because if you fail, you have to retake the course so everyone does everything they can to avoid failure. If you graduate from college Straight A's, you have to do some serious soul searching as to why you chose to spend your time. The best way to do that is to remember that information until the exam is over and then forget that isn't true learning. No, no, because go find people were successful in this world find, you know, talk show hosts and comedians and novelists and attorneys and gold. See how many here got straight A's throughout school, none of them are gonna raise their hands. So rather than truly valuing intuitive business traits, business school puts more value on memorizing information than actually applying it. That's how you learn by making connections and finding out how all this knowledge connects together for the bigger picture. If you're not really learning a lot in business school, you're learning how to follow instructions and listen to task and complete him efficiently and on times. Okay, So if that's all business school is is being able to be given a box given instructions on how to fill up the box and do it on time, then what about entrepreneurs? I have friends that are doing tons of bangs and entrepreneurship and are being successful in it. So why is there so much emphasis on it? The only way you could event tomorrow is if you break out of the enclosure that the school system has provided for you by the exams written by people who are trained in another generation. We can talk about how school only caters to one type of Lerner. We can talk about how school puts way too much value on literacy and not enough on creativity.
