This month’s issue of Get a Life covers the topic What is the best way to learn what you need to make a big career change? I received so many emails from folks that felt overwhelmed with what they needed to learn to start a business that I wanted to help you brainstorm easy ways to assimilate new information.
One of the topics discussed is weighing whether you need an advanced degree or not for your field of interest. I always joke that my brother took care of all the higher education for the family – he has an undergraduate degree from Brown, a doctorate from UCLA and a post-doctorate from Cal Tech. I think there is a limit on smart genes per family and we simply ran out by the time I came around. (Good thing I am the social one.)
What do you think?
Do you need an MBA or other advanced degree to be a successful entrepreneur?
Are advanced degrees just meaningless fluff and a big waste of your time and money?
I have my own opinions, but I really want to hear what you have to say.
