Why Innovative Entrepreneurs Shouldn’t Write Off The MBA

Nathan Furr recently published a thought-provoking analysis in Inc. on why the skills developed while obtaining an MBA are misaligned with the characteristics required for driving innovation. The article cites strong sentiment from leading investors and entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Peter Thiel and Scott Cook, who believe that graduate school curriculums stunt innovation.

As an MBA and an entrepreneur myself who has seen firsthand that an MBA can be a significant driver of innovation and entrepreneurship, I believe it’s a subject that merits discussion, regardless of which camp you fall into.
