Argument: Success for the best foreign students does not depend on attendance at the best schools
Supporting quotes from the Economist Online Debate Series
- BusinessRecovery, commenter. Economist Online Debate Series. December 16, 2007 10:25 - ..."It has been proven that it is not whether or not one graduates from one of the top universities in any one country that will provide a passport to success. Rather, it is the quality of the �€œhumanware�€�, that is, the student that matters. A �€œgood�€� (here defined as one with intellectual capacity, interest, determination, dedication, work experience, some experience living and traveling abroad, mindset, hard worker, high energy level, with attitude, personality and courage of conviction) outdoes, overachieves, succeeds. The majority of Fortune 500�€™s CEOs have not graduated from top universities."
