i believe school doesn’t teach you much. it depends on you and your passion to learn. it doesnt matter which setting you are in for learning and improve your skiil set.

Like now, to me, self improvement better than other ways, because I have a job, every day I need do something, so I haven’t more free time to learn others, but I can plan my free time to learn other interesting things. If you live you should study for the future.

My personal opinion, I think it different, it depends on whether what do you want from studying, becuase more than  the cetificate that you will get it, you must to have friend from grad school. I mean some of people studying to advance degree for keep relation, contibuite opportunities for business also. For me, I like both of advanced degree and self improvement.

i have already done my grad  but still if i need anything in order to hone my skills i just go for internet as it is the best resource for all the information you require. 


self improvement and taking classes both has its own undeniable advantages.

I’d like to get an advanced degree, but I don’t think I can’t afford it at the moment. And Gary is right that there are many great resources online which can always help us improve ourselfves.

When you walk around a campus in the US you will notice  how many  Chinese and  Japanese  students have enrolled  to study in a prestigious university . As Jessica, i prefer  one to one studies . It is not the same a master degree  obtained in a recognized university  than  a degree from an online course . When you apply for a job, a degree from the last one is of scarce value.

   In Taiwan, with 98% granted rate to University, you really have no choice but go further for higher degrees like Master or Doctor degree, if you want a better job.


   While in many countries the skills are really the matter things, in Taiwan it is not. If you have a higher degree, it would guarantee a higher paid job. Althought skills and degrees are not necessarily connected, unfortunately it is still a case here.
