The article “the best performing ceos in the world” caught my eye. Of the 50 ceos mentioned 35 of them didn’t have a mba degree! On average the top 50 ceos increased the wealth of their shareholders by $48.2 billion.
It was found ceos who were promoted from inside the company tended to have stronger performance than those brought in from the outside.
I do have a couple of friends who have got their b school degrees and bring a lot of value on the table. Their thinking is more progressive and better equipped to deal with challenges… The question I would want to ask is how important do you think a mba degree is? Since I don’t have one it would be difficult for me to comment on this but am curious.
I shall blog about my experience soon… tilll then do drop in your views…
