CEO Blog Nation recently posted an article, and included my thoughts.
I wrote, “In a world with an overabundance of entrepreneurs all trying to make their mark, an MBA from Harvard stands alone. An MBA from other ivy league institutions also can set an entrepreneur apart from the muck, but Harvard is the magic word that any investor wants to hear. Of course, one can succeed without an MBA from an ivy league institution, but it gives a graduate an incredible head start. Once you start to get into the nitty gritty of the actual degree from a non-ivy league school, majoring in business or entrepreneurship and having completed internships at excellent organizations is good to have under your belt. It shows that you’re focused and have experience to hit the ground running. An economics or finance degree used to be good for your prototype entrepreneur CEO, but nowadays, that’s more a CFO’s resume.”
