If you believe that this is the only purpose of a degree, you're a
bit off target. A degree, to most employers, is more than the simple
qualification in the appropriate area; it also indicates a certain
level of discipline, ability to operate in a structured environment,
exposure to research techniques and processes, and general ability to
get along. These could well be even more important to the employer
than the actual qualification. This is why I said earlier that any
degree (even in a distant discipline) is better than none at all.
