Expert Level

I went to grad school with different levels like 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000 and 8000.    All it taught was basic and elementary knowledge.  Nothing so deep into any specific subject.  Rarely there could you find one who was an expert at a particular domain. 

Here is how you become an expert.  You become an expert after experience, ultimate self interest, doing some certifications or professional courses.  In today's market place everybody has a degree and subject know how.  Probably you would get a job with a degree.   But that's not the point.

The point is in becoming an expert and the best at a subject.  Look at the best movie of 2009 earnings and the second one's.  Don't even try to figure out the third one it doesn't matter.  Your value is if you are the best.  Avatar made 10 times more money than an average movie released in 2009.  Why? Because it was the best.

If college education can remove all those unwanted clutter and just focus on making students experts, then they would be highly differentiated and thriving.  I want to have all colleges an Expert level compulsory for graduation.  Either you are an expert at a particular niche domain or you don't graduate.
