If money is the thing that solely motivates you, you are wasting your time going to university. The quickest way to financial success is to run your own business.
But having said that, you need to appreciate that when you graduate, you have absolutely no skills whatsoever and will be paid accordingly. Once you gain skills in a particular field that is when the money starts rolling in.
Prestige of university counts for very little amongst most employers as they are more interested in you rather than the colour of your tie. Cambridge and Oxford turn out many unemployable graduates all with 1st class degrees.
One last thing to think about. In the quest for money everyone seems to forget happiness. "I am really passionate about marketing and sales," said absolutely no one ever! Just a thought.
