Why an MBA Does Not Impress Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg
By Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook
Going to business school helped give me a basic understanding in business. For some people and in some situations this can be helpful.
That said, I believe – and at Facebook we believe – that degrees are always secondary to skills.
In hiring at Facebook (FB) we care what people can build and do. While I got great value from my experience, MBAs are not necessary at Facebook and I don’t believe they are important for working in the tech industry.
