Downward Mobility

The University where I got my Bachelor’s offers an MSc in Mobile Computing.

The funny thing is, I pretty much teach that entire course, at a more advanced level than what the MSc does in their courseware, in my own corporate training classes.

I am trying very hard to reconcile in my head why I’d subject myself to sub-standard knowledge that I already have, pay someone for the privilege, and be forced to actually be present in a classroom for an entire year, just to get a piece of paper telling me what I already know.

This isn’t to put down the knowledge of the professors teaching the classes, merely to point out that the level of knowledge being imparted is “old news” to me.
