    Surely, having PhD significantly boosts your career opportunities but I don’t think it is a must. For example, Steve Jobs or Richard Branson (more examples at http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/249683) didn’t graduate college but did pretty good and achieved what they wanted. So, having a degree doesn’t mean much. Well, except having to pay huge fees and then later spending years to pay off your student loan. These are the main problems a good half of students worldwide is facing and these become a good reasong to go to college or grad school but invest money in yourself. Still, there is another issue – whether you can pull it off. This is a big risk and no one is ready to take it. That’s why articles like at http://dissertationwriter.org/is-a-phd-worth-it/ talk about going to grad school and having great time. Nevertheless, the decision is always yours.

    Fully agree, I did my PhD part in industry and part at the university lab, it was a huge sacrifice and you need to be patient, but at the end, a PhD profile with industrial experience gave me all the opportunities i was looking for.
