    Hell Yes! Of course, there are free government educational institutes but the environment in there is close to shit. It might be exception in some countries but I believe this is very obvious is developing and under-developed countries.

    I think so there are so many advertisers for join to collage they want you to spend your money with them figure if they can get you to go to there school how much does collage cost at least 10k a year even for a small local collage in your city run my the city.

    There is a collage that has people advertise in a way you can tell lets say a guy named John has an ad with an web address saying to go there and it doesn't even end in .edu but it sends you to the school site and hes a referral so he gets a commission if you enroll there.

    Yes education is a business, a big business. I left college because I figured that out and didn't want to play the game anymore, then I came to digitalpoint and never looked back. Who needs a degree when you can make $100/day while sleeping?

    Why "these days"? It was always a business, may be not so profitable earlier, but now its one of the businesses which isn't hit by any recession. Absolutely risk free business. Another splendid example is the media business.

    It has always been a business. From the point of view of the USA (and I don't doubt this is similar in other countries) the business concepts were offering quality education which led to organic growth and for them to be bigger, better establishments offering the best education for the money. Now the market is distorted with for profit universities valuing admission numbers over quality and ensuring that you leave with a worthless piece of paper.

    Yes, it ia a very well paid business if you know how to take the advantages from this.

    it is definitely a business just like anything else. If there aren't really any opportunities for profits, why pursue it? I see signs of education becoming business in little things like for example, a college putting millions of dollars of funding into their sports programs or to rebuild their sports stadiums rather than putting it into the actual EDUCATION part of the school
