Most would agree that college education is a good investment. However, like with any debt, when is worth it? When does it make economic sense and when does it not? An important factor to consider is what your career is going to look like. Certainly, you need to make the best possible investment. Knowing your comparative advantage based on your preferences, your education, your experience, and what the market is demanding is important. But it doesn’t end there, you need to be entrepreneurial about it.
