Is a degree worth having in Africa?
Students nearing the end of their final year at universities across Africa are contemplating their career options - but will their academic degrees land them their dream job?
Research from the World Bank and the Kenya Promotion Council suggests that Kenyan graduates are missing out on good jobs because university teaching does not place enough emphasis on practical skills .One report says insurance companies spend a lot of money bringing graduates up to scratch because they lack the relevant skills.
Has higher education enhanced your job opportunities? If you are an employer in Africa what's your experience of hiring recent graduates? If you didn't attend university, were you able to find a good job? Are there other benefits to having a degree besides financial ones? Are you a recent graduate? Tell me your experience.
