"A Degree is a Degree, Whether it is Fake or Genuine"

An investigation has revealed that dozens of Members of Parliament in Pakistan have fake university degrees.
The scandal has triggered fears of early elections and has inflamed a bitter dispute between journalists and members of parliament.

An investigation has found some MPs never finished their studies while others bought their qualifications from dodgy colleges...

The chief minister of Balochistan Province, Nawab Muhammad Aslam Raisani, told the press: "A degree is a degree, whether it is fake or genuine."

Having a degree really only protects the person making the hiring decision. In other words, if the person making the hiring decision picks someone without a degree, they are putting themselves at great risk if that person screws up, especially if another candidate with a degree was not chosen. Think "You hired someone without a degree?!?! What were you thinking?"

We all know you only get out of degree what you put into it.

I had already read many many books on HR theory and HR management but I needed a degree to get into management. Luckily, they accepted UoP degrees, so I got one of those.
