Elon Musk said a college degree isn’t required for a job at Tesla — and Apple, Google, and Netflix don’t require employees to have 4-year degrees either

Students assume getting a 4-year degree — and taking on the thousands of dollars of student-loan debt that comes along with it — is the only way to get your foot in the door at top companies such as Tesla, Apple, and Netflix.  But that isn’t always true. Even the CEO of Tesla doesn’t think you need it. According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, colleges “are not for learning,” but rather a place to have fun, speaking on Monday at the Satellite 2020 conference. Musk said you can learn anything online for free, and noted that billionaire moguls like Bill Gates and Oracle’s Larry Ellison dropped out of college. Ideally, he added, you would have dropped out of school “and did something.”
