If you did computer science or finance for example or other type of quantative degree your university experience would help directly.
In an indirect fashion, writing thesis papers will improve one's ability to communicate. It certainly has helped me as a finance analyst that writes over 10,000 words a week.
I think that university helps one develop the intangibles that will prepare you for the workforce. For me, it was a great transition between a sheltered high school life with a small circle of friends, to the workforce where networking is important.
