ROI of Your Bachelors Degree - Know the Expert Insights

Study your Bachelors Abroad

The twenty first century is the information age, in which digitization has diminished borders across the world. In the evergreen Bollywood movie, Three Idiots, Aamir Khan said it best, "gyan to har jagah bat raha hai, jitna bator sakte ho, bator lo". Loosely translated, the line goes knowledge is available everywhere, but it is how capable you are to collect it. Bibliographies of great personalities in the world who have really proved something to the world, made me really feel that they have not pursued education for the sake of completion of their degrees. Instead they have followed their visions and their dreams. Great role models like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Dhirubhai Ambani have not pursued great degrees, or higher education but in fact have actively dropped out.

  • Bill Gates went to Harvard to study Law, like his father before him but ended up dropping out after he founded Microsoft and has consistently held the top spot on the list for the world's richest.
  • Mark Zuckerberg opted to drop out of Harvard in his sophomore year so that he can complete his project and gave us Facebook.
  • Another legend, Dhirubhai Ambani, an Indian business tycoon, the founder of Reliance Industries, who was the son of a teacher, but had little interest in studies, was not a brilliant student but an exceptional leader.

These bibliographies inspire to follow your inner voice instead of following blindly the pandemonium of the outside world. The world is crammed with opportunities, and students today are not restricted to choose to study some limited courses like MBA, medical, engineering or some other century old courses. A student needs to understand his or her career goal, and then choose from the list of courses available from a plethora of universities, active in the world. Everybody can't be Zukerberg or Gates or Ambani to perform without education, but everyone has a dream or vision to follow. The level of competition that a present individual has to face today is far more than what it was a decade back and the reason is globalization. Now, one has to compete with experts from around the world who are equally skilled with a diverse pool of experiences. A high-schooler can't expect to have a white collar job because Ambani had it.

The competition in the market is such that even to acquire a low grade job one needs to be a graduate. An article in the Wall Street Journal says that a bachelor's degree pays off six times more than a high-school diploma. The latest unemployment figures show that most of the degrees are not seeking as much as jobs due to low availability since there is a deficit supply and demand relationship curve here. This prediction about higher education in future has changed the vision of ROI for Bachelor Degree.

The return on Investment (ROI) for Bachelor's Degree has become questionable issue, as it depends on certain factors.

  1. Now, the first thing to keep in mind is that your bachelor's degree is also a pathway for your specialisation or Master's, as in the absence of a bachelor's degree most of the universities wouldn't allow you to participate in the Master's courses.
  2. The ROI of your bachelor's degree depends on your proficiencies as well as how efficiently you follow your vision.
  3. Choosing the right course and getting enrolled in a prestigious university around the world is half the battle and yet is the step most notably overlooked. There are many top places to pursue higher education.
  4. India is a land of talents, but talent is not nurtured well in the country as there are too many to be cared for.
  5. Pursuing higher education in an international university will prepare individuals to face the global competition and to leave your mark.

Frequently Asked Questions

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider are time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration. Canada is wholeheartedly inviting students to study in their universities to fill job vacancies that are always growing in the country. Students who study in Canada (especially a Master’s Degree) are practically assured of a Permanent Residency Visa.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however, it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department looks for in a scholarship application. There are other attributes such as a candidate’s academics, extra-curricular, financial background, and application essays (SOPs).

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.

Also, review the placement history of the university as well.

The first step is to list your preferences. By listing your preferences and strengths, describe your course of preference. Extensive research on the modules, software and its length for your preferred subject is necessary.
