Re: What education do you have?

I'm curious how this poll would change if you asked how much of people's education is recognized here.

Re: What education do you have?

This might be slightly more useful if you didn't use US-only terms of reference. I do know that a US 'college' degree is not usually as rigourous as a European Bachelor's, but I've no idea about how the rest of them compare.

Edit: Oh, and I notice that you don't allow for anyone not to have at least a High School Diploma (whatever that is).

Oh, and also, perhaps most importantly, you're clearly asking about qualifications, not education. They are not the same thing. Not even close.

Re: What education do you have?

What on earth is "some college degree," if it is something different from the other given college options?

Maybe what the OP is referring to is some other type of accreditation such as a College diploma? I don't know about the States, but in Canada Universities issue Degrees and Colleges give diplomas and their weight and scope are completely different from each other.

Same as any other Master's degree completed after a Master's degree.

MBA = Master of Business Administration = Master's degree.

Re: What education do you have?

In the US some college/universities offer 2 year 'associates degrees' particularly from community colleges, after 2 more years you could finish a bachelor.
