Some people think that the best way to become successful in life is to get a university education while others say this is no longer true. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
People across the globe have been searching for the key to success but it has remained a myth. Some people claim that the best solution is to get a degree while other people think otherwise. This essay will discuss both sides of the argument and then I will give my own perspective.
On the one hand, many people believe that attending higher education is the surest way to succeed. Universities can provide students with useful knowledge and skills that would enable them to perform well at work. They can acquire fundamental knowledge about society and specialized knowledge of a certain major such as accounting and engineering. This can give them a definite advantage and lay the foundation for a promising career. Indeed, a relevant degree is a prerequisite for those who want to become successful doctors, teachers, psychologists or engineers. Additionally, when attending university, people can gain valuable skills that are crucial for success such as time management and interpersonal skills, including teamwork.
Nevertheless, many argue that university is not the most practical way to achieve great accomplishments in life now. Firstly, knowledge obtained at universities might be theoretical and outdated. Consequently, when students graduate and join the workforce, they can not put what they have learned into practice, and thus have to retrain themselves. Secondly, a degree is not a prerequisite for success in today’s world, especially in business. In fact, many people have achieved phenomenal/ huge success although they did not finish higher education such as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. The Internet has opened unprecedented opportunities for all individuals to succeed. With great talents and charismatic personalities, many people can attract a huge fan base, become high-profile influencers on social media and run their own businesses at a very young age.
In conclusion, both sides of the argument have their own merits and I incline to the view that there is no such thing as the best way to become successful. People should strive to find out what works for them.
