With all the talk about jobs, the economy and the need for a good education, some people have stepped back to ask, is college worth the cost? They make their case by citing numerous billionaires (see infographic below) who have done just fine without a college degree.
Looking at it through this lens, the evidence is compelling. These are living examples of people who have had plenty of success without the benefit of a college degree.
Sure it makes sense some people will be wildly successful no matter what level of formal education they have. Malcolm Gladwell calls them outliers. But not everyone is an outlier. The rest of us need the boost a good education can give us. So even though it’s fun to say these billionaires prove college is not necessary for success, I would argue for rather than against a good college education.
