How many of you think that MBA is required to start a business ?
So how many people think MBA is necessary to run the business successfully?
It’s a myth actually propagated by MBA guys. There is a big conspiracy out there.
I am not saying MBA is useless but many people don’t even think of starting their own business just because in their mind, it’s a prerequisite for starting their own business. Either they have fed their mind with this or someone has told them so.
Today I am going to give you some shocking facts & I am guaranteeing most you that most of the MBAs won’t like it.
According to Forbes,
Out of first 10 billionaires 6 are college dropouts & nobody is MBA.
Out of next 10 billionaires only one is college dropout & 5 other own their wealth from their parents.
For example,Mukesh Ambani. He owns $22.3 billion in assets but his father Dhirubhai Ambani who is a college dropout. Same case for Walton family. Only Michael Bloomberg is MBA.
Out of next 10 billionaires 2 people are college dropouts, founders of Google : Larry Page & Sergey Brin. Nobody is an MBA.
These are a few other billionaires
(Dropout) Steve Jobs (Deceased)
$ 9 Billion
Mark Zuckerberg (Dropout)
$ 17.5 Billion
So now you know, there is no direct correlation between MBA & Net Worth.
So enjoy & chill out.
