How many of them are NIGERIANS from the middle and lower class?

Our economy will destroy you if you dare downgrade EDUCATION.

I almost dropped out of school in 2007 after reading RICH DAD and POOR DAD but the question that helped me regained my senses was "Is there any correlation between these guys economy and ours?"

EDUCATION in AFRICA is a meal ticket while entrepreneurial skill builds the empire, however; In Africa, entrepreneurial skill will suffer a great deal if not backed up with SOUND EDUCATION

True fact some igbo's are drop-out and some nigerian's too yet they made themselves millionaires it is very applicable in nigeria go to computer village,alaba,ladipo etc they will tell am a drop out and they will show you the dollar even some never use their certificate just as many bloggers today knowledge is only power if you can apply it and study course that is applicable to modern situation,many nigerian university housed alot of unapplicable courses with theoritical overtone how will unemployment not common in our society.Which certificate those who wrote our first school and university textbook acquire or is it certificate that made otedola,dankote,adenuga,jim ovie billionaires is their business innovative mind with little or no certificate backing.

Smartsyn: Wow..

Dropout of school in Nigeria at your own detriment.



Unless your dream is being a musician and you've seen the light when in school, like Phyno and Wizkid..

But if na you wan develop a program like most people in the post above, you're OYO.

Boss what do you mean?

In Nigeria graduates are Jobless, Our billionaires are not rich because they have Certificates, but because of their innovations.

If I may ask what's the use of Formal Education? If you know what you're good at you don't need to have "Kpali" before achieving your dreams.

No one is asking you to drop out of school. The OP is directed at everyone to pursue their dreams irrespective of qualifications or a lack of it. And what do you mean by modern world? Isn't Microsoft a part of the modern world or is Facebook or CNN a part of the ancient world? Almost all the stuffs we study in school are works of people who either didn't go to school or dropped out of school. Examples are Einstein, Shakespeare, George Bernard Shaw, e.t.c.

ANOTHER BILLIONAIRE'S DUATHER JUST GRAUADUATE FROM KINGS COLLECGE, LONDON

SOURCE


Ruhbiee: 10. David Geffen
Unlike most self-made billionaires who left
college to start a successful business right
away, David Geffen's road was a bit rockier.
He graduated from high school barely
passing with a 66 percent average. After
attending three semesters at the University
of Texas in Austin and enrolling in the
Brooklyn College only to drop out again, he
went on to work for ten years in the
entertainment business before founding
Asylum Records in the 1970′s. In 1980 he
started Geffen Records, and in 1990 DGC
Records. With a current net worth of $5.5
billion, David Geffen is now one of the three
co-founders of DreamWorks SKG. kissUnlike most self-made billionaires who left

You are yet to start out on a vision or an idea and you are thinking of dropping out of school? You failure in life will not get part 2.

If you don't have an idea that can the world, please I take your mama head beg you, STAY IN SCHOOL!!!

All these billionaires dropped out of school because they would rather spend their times pursuing their dreams than being in class. If you don't have a workable idea and you dropout peren...OYO is ur case o!
Re: 10 Billionaire Who Dropped Out Of School by BoyCoyToy(m): 1:03pm On Jul 23, 2014
The message in that post is that you can still make it without education. Take a look at Cletus Ibeto, he's a Nigerian.

School is very important, but making it is not through school alone.

Another thing you need to note in that post is that most of these people mentioned are inventors. Know what you are doing either in School or out of School.

And the last thing to note is that they all have basic education (Primary & Secondary).

Thanks

Actually, school (formal education) is overrated. Most of the basic survival skills (in my profession) that I now posses were learnt outside the classroom, on the streets, the hard way!

7 out of the 8 people you mentioned, dropped out while having a valuable skill; programming. Without a degree computer programming can put food on your table. If you want to drop out of school, please get a valuable skill first.

GentleMimi: Some silly peeps fail to get the story or the moral of the story.
Your life limitations should not limit your goal and vision. Education is not a gaurantee for success,its just the oil to make the journey to success smoother and easier.
Rely not upon the things/situation around you to define your destiny.
My prayer be say Baba God go carry me go higher level wey pass my qualification and skill. Grace combined with personal doggedness is unbeatable.
Re: 10 Billionaire Who Dropped Out Of School by Orinameh: 1:21pm On Jul 23, 2014
One thing we fail to understand is that schooling is not education. These guys might not be schooled to a larger extent but I bet you, they are well educated. I doubt if some people read more than them on a daily basis

It has been proven from various sociological studies that a good formal education and adequate exposure are the key ingredients of a successful career. The fact that a few people seem to go against this trend is not enough reason to justify not getting educated.

One glaring fact: THEY DROPPED OUT IN THE 70's.

This is 2014. Don't even try it..
