Hey Robb, Thanks for sharing your story!
I dropped out of business school (marketing major) 4 months ago and took a Digital Marketing course in General Assembly. Now, I do marketing and advertising work for 2 companies and a non-profit. I have to say that I’ve learned far more by actually WORKING and researching stuff on Google and YouTube!
The crazy thing here is that we are not alone. As you can see and even feel, more and more people are recognizing the irrelevance of a university education today in the fields of CS and Business. I have 2 friends who dropped out of university to pursue lucrative careers in Amazon and Disney as developers…
Question: How do you think society will evaluate people’s skill set and value?
