  1. Hello Fabrice, I appreciate your worldview and follow you on twitter. I have a question for you. I have a friend who is native to Kinsasha and would love to move abroad. He was educated in Kinsasha and speaks English fairly well. I have attempted to help him obtain a job abroad but we are always met with the response that his resume is not good enough. It seems to me that being educated in DRC is not valued very highly abroad. How can I explain to him that and what can I do to help him? Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    1. Hello Brandon, thanks for the follow. Yes, DRC’s education system is not valued in the West due to high corruption rate, and its purported low quality. It’s unfortunate that a congolese diploma isn’t as valuable in the U.S., but there are scholarships to study here to prove yourself. Yes, they are very competitive, but he will do fine since he already speaks English fairly well. He can also check out the state department’s Fulbright program. You can help him along the process. I am not an expert on this topic, but I have been through the process. Good luck!

      1. Thank you very much for that advice. I appreciate it and will look into it.
        Thanks again!

  2. Good afternoon,
    Sorry to bother you again. My friend has a degree in “Droit economiques et Social” from Université Chrétienne Cardinal Malula – ISPL in Kinsasha. Would that be the equivalent to an American bachelors degree?

    Thanks!
    Brandon
