These days, most of us can’t imagine advising our children not to go to college. In fact, it’s almost becoming the norm to not only go to college, but to go to many, many years of it. Post-bachelor’s education is becoming more and more common as eager students looking for jobs realize that pursuing various forms of masters degrees might help them pay off the debt they find themselves in after those years are up.
But not everyone in history, not even some very famously successful tech giants still heading up companies today, had that philosophy.
Tech-FAQ.com has rounded up a few of history’s biggest tech and/or science moguls who did not finish or somehow did not pursue a formal education, to point out that there’s always an exception to the rule. This is in no way an endorsement of less education, but a fun graphic nonetheless. A few highlights:
– Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook‘s famous face, only completed two years of college at Harvard.
– Thomas Edison went to high school for a mere three months. He didn’t need a high school education for his light bulb to go off.
