The article lays out a case that the opposite is true. Lay out your case please.
That’s a key question. How many of the top CEOs, business executives, etc. went to prestigious universities, vs. how many went to state universities, or less prestigious private ones.
Someone on another thread mentioned that the reason to go to the prestigious universities, is to make connections, life long friendships with prominent people, etc. which benefit you throughout life. These universities do not give you a better quality education that you can get elsewhere. It’s all about the connections made.
Someone else noted, that every single member of the Supreme Court went to either Harvard or Yale.
“Most of the CEOs of USA went to Harvard or other Ivy league schools.”
Where did you get that info. I think you will find most CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies outside of finance did not go to Ivy League schools.You won’t find many Ivy Leaguers in public corporations outside of finance. Definitely not in tech because Ivy Leagues are not known for tech or engineering.
...decades ago when degrees meant something.
There, I made it into a true statement for you.
Correct. My son Graduated from an impressive school but down the list a ways. Some of the Top companies dont even recruit that far down the chain. It is sad. While a degree can open some doors, zF up and you can be done.
