McKenzie Holland: How Important is a Degree in Today's Business World?

It's a question that has been raised a lot in business; do young entrepreneurs need a degree to succeed? Sales and marketing firm, McKenzie Holland investigates.

    MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, February 21, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- There are plenty of benefits of having a degree for aspiring entrepreneurs, for example a good, well-recognised, university could impress investors and make it easier to get funding as they will likely believe that the person can succeed. As well as this, the university experience builds a strong work ethic, improves time management skills and can prepare people to be more independent. Additionally, it can teach people how to manage with what they have; this is a trait which is very important in entrepreneurship as entrepreneurs may not be able to afford all the resources they would like at the start.

About McKenzie Holland:

However, despite these benefits McKenzie Holland says that there are some negatives for entrepreneurs with a degree. For example graduates start their business career with a lot of debt and employment many not bring in enough to pay off the debt, possibly making it harder to get bank loans etc.

To help aspiring entrepreneurs decide whether they need a degree or not, McKenzie Holland has stated what people must consider before they start a business/get a degree.

What type of business do you want to start? Some business, especially those based in professional services, may truly require a degree. Others, however, can be learned just as well with real-world experience.

What other education options exist? If the business will require learning things like basic accounting or marketing principles, there are plenty of ways to get that knowledge without a costly four-year degree, including plenty of online courses and community colleges.

What other advantages does college confer? In some cases, college connections confer entree to sophisticated investors, entrepreneurs or advisors who can help the start-up advance quickly. But these cases are rare and there may be other ways to make those same connections.

How much money is at your disposal and how is it best spent? If you're fortunate enough to have some capital on hand, do the math. How much will the start-up cost? How much would college cost? Could the college fund be better spent doing a start-up?
