Submission + - Why Mark Zuckerberg is a bad role model for aspiring tech execs (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: "Want to run a successful high-tech company? Don't drop out of college. The myth of the brilliant Ivy League student who starts a business in his dorm room, drops out of school, and goes on to run a successful high-tech start-up for many decades to come is essentially just that: a myth. Despite a few high-profile exceptions — such as Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates — the vast majority of CEOs running successful U.S. high -tech firms have college degrees, and more than half have at least one graduate degree."
