So, the last paragraph says, essentially, the degree isn't enough, you require more higher education.

From my perspective...having the degree shows you can put in the work - based on my experience, it helps to weed out those who just heard the field pays well and that's the only reason they showed up (literally what I've heard from some people). The very first semester rid us of 2/3 of people who registered. More we as progressed.

Of course, by the time I graduated, most of what was taught was obsolete. Still, I'd rather have coworkers who have the foundation to build their careers upon. "Learn how to learn", as others have written...
