When our eldest daughter finished secondary school, one of his wishes was educate yourself to be enterprising. After studying countless curricular of several houses in superior studies in Chile, reached the conclusion that he would not be an easy task to find what you were looking for. The vast majority of universities and higher study establishments that offer careers such as management of business or economics have as ultimate goal prepare their students so that they insert into the workforce as employees, not entrepreneurs. My daughter, who made his college at home and is accustomed to designing their education independently, got himself a position as an apprentice to a prominent Trader’s actions in the U.S. stock market, because it was an area that interested him much. After this experience we had to ask the following question: is it really necessary that an entrepreneur go to College? While most of the studies and statistics demonstrate unequivocally that persons with a higher education earn more money, there are countless entrepreneurs successful that they have proved otherwise. By studying the life of the great entrepreneurs of the story, one is surprised that, apart from being very successful men, have another feature in common: none of them possesses a university degree and many of them not even finished school. Here are just a few of the more well-known examples: Andrew Carnegie, industrialist and philanthropist, never finished College.
Benjamin Franklin, inventor, scientist, author and entrepreneur. Educated at home. Charles Culpeper, owner and CEO of Coca Cola. He did not finish college. Christopher Columbus, Explorer, discovered America. Educacado at home. Colonel Harlan Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC).
He did not complete College and later earned a degree in law with a correspondence course. David Geffen, billionaire founder of Geffen Records and co-founder of DreamWorks. He left the University after studying for a year.
