Should Entrepreneurs go to College? I understand the case that 4 years of building a business is more valuable than a standard college business education. A business degree isn't what it once was. Personally, I learned not one practical thing from my marketing degree that I've used to build my business! I have a marketing degree and accounting minor and I can't think of one specific piece of information I learned that help me build my business. That being said, I honestly think college is a great thing for all people! The Self Learning Stage: An Important stage in personal human development that must last 1-4 years between living with your parents and being an adult. One must answer to nobody but themselves & live on their own with limited responsibilities. I think it's nearly impossible to learn business in the classroom. So I give some tips on how Entrepreneurs should approach college if the decided to go. I did and it was a great experience overall! Please Connect me with anybody who went to business school and believes that education helped them build their business- I am open to being wrong about this!
