If you’re looking to earn the biggest annualized net return on your college investment, studies consistently show that your best bet is via a science- or math-based technical degree. With that in mind, one would assume science or math is the most valuable subject taught in grade school. Not true; it’s English. Especially when you consider that our customers, bosses, and colleagues oftenÂ gauge our competence and evaluate our work based uponÂ how well we write.
The bottom line: Practice writing because, although not impossible, it’s tough to be highly successful in the business world when you can’t communicate effectively.
