Education has evolved considerably over the past several decades. What was once an institution where you spent a large chunk of your life in the pursuit of a degree in your field of choice with the promise of employment in that field is now a multitude of different things.

No longer are students required to essentially move in to their educational institution of choice. Education can be delivered online and in a smaller 1-1 environment, allowing students to work while they earn their degree. Seeing someone with multiple degrees in vastly different fields is now much more common than it used to be. But is it as important as it once was?

What is your take on this important question?
