Yes it does for me it helps a lot when you apply for a job. But unfortunately with employment problem now, it's very stiff the competition for finding a job. It's like your in a thread going inside a needle.What is just important is have a job after graduationg or finishing your studies. Some people still take another course or take a masters degree for promotion or for a positon that is why education guarantees life success in life.Education is an arm that cannot be bought by anyone,it's a fall back for the future not only you,but for your family. Have a nice day!

No, nothing can guarantee success in life. Education merely gives you a higher chance of being able to get the job or life that you wanted. It offers extra choices that you wouldn't have had before. However, education is not the be-all, end-all of success. That also depends on how much effort you're willing to put into succeeding.

i don't really think that it guarantess you success in life...i mean i honestly think that its the person that is going to be able to do whatever they want in life wheater they go to college for a year or five years...i do think that education is important though so that people don't try and take you in life...i mean there are a lot of people that try and scam others everyday...

Nope, you need much more than a good education to be successful. Education is one key to success though.

It doesn't guarantee it by any means. But it does significantly enhance the chances of financial success. That is the meaning of success I take it? However, some entrepreneurs leave school at 16 and go on to be far more successful than Phd graduates and academics. There are always exceptions to the rule. Money, therefore should not be taken to be the only form of success, just as education should not be said to be a guaranteed platform for success.

I think it takes more than education to be successful. Education does not guarantee success.
