If you go abroad or stay home and study "liberal arts' , you are likely to be unemployed no matter where you go looking for a job.

Having a degree in 'history' or 'philosophy' isn't going to get you anywhere no matter which college name is on the degree.....

Finance, MBA, accounting, legal, science, engineering - that is what employers are looking for.

Nice article, but silly. Go abroad to study liberal arts for 4 years? Waste of money!

Why bother?

Oh, right...they like reading and philosophy...and about the only thing that qualifies them for is a job in academia teaching other kids about 'liberal arts'...... once they get their PhDs by spending tens of thousands in tuition......to wind up virtually unemployable outside academia...
