founder and CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk recently stated that you don’t need a college degree to work on his automotive and energy company,Tesla. Elon Musk had already made it clear that you don’t need a college degree to work in Tesla. Now once again he spoke about it and answered the question by a tweet.
When Alec Palm asked Elon Musk “Do you still stand firmly on not requiring college degrees?” via Twitter. Elon Musk responded to that tweet saying “Yes”. Elon Musk was asked in an interview that “Do you think college degree is important?” Elon Musk replied saying “it wasn’t always necessary that a person who graduated from a great college would be capable of great things.”
Elon Musk gave the examples of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Oracle founder Larry Ellison to say that even if these people didn’t graduate from college, it would have been a good idea to hire them. Musk looks for the “evidence of exceptional ability” in his potential employees rather than any prestigious college degree.
