Should you go to university before becoming an entrepreneur?

Should you go to university before becoming an entrepreneur?

We want to know what you think, recently Mark Zuckerberg was criticized for being a bad role model for dropping out of university because as a percentage more US billionaires did get degree’s rather then not, like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

Do you think that you should go to university and get a degree before starting your own business or does it not matter?

    It clearly doesn’t matter, what you do, if you go to university yes you get a degree but what does that really mean? you could simply just learn what you need to know as most of the stuff you need is on the internet, I didn’t need to go to university to learn web development although I may have learn’t it faster at university but I would rather stay at home and learn it for free so you don’t need to go to university!

    No I don’t think so 😛
    Going to Uni will leave you £40-45k of unnecessary debt which could easily be avoided or else be put into your business.
    Unless you are doing something that requires a degree or it is essential that you learn something for your business, like Jubby996 said – I don’t see how it benefits you.

      It is not unnecessary it is an investment and you pay it off in small payments. I can’t speak for any other countries though.

      Where are you going to get the £40-£35 to put into your business, or are you saying that you’d not be at that much of a financial loss?

        what the point of spending 40k on something you can learn at home? that 40k could go into your business to (yes you may not have it all at once but it could be put in to the business in small bits) just think, you can go to university and spend that 40k on the course and then spend another 40k throughout your life on your business, but you could easily save 40k by not going to university and learning it just as good at home for free, you could even put the other 40k saved into your company!
