European research finds that degrees do not guarantee jobs | connect.educause.edu:
Researchers at Finland's University of Helsinki have found that higher education does not guarantee employment.

This finding may not surprise, but it is very interesting given Finland's position within the European context for education and career progression / workforce mobility....

Yet a recent World Economic Forum report identified Finland as the world's most competitive economy, citing its "culture of innovation." Education, evidently, has a large role to play in maintaining this position. But is it enough?
