  1. so says: No, it’s not necessary but it’s deniiftely an asset.A lot of people I know own their own businesses and don’t have a degree. They did it because they wanted to be their own boss, and you don’t need university for that It’s really hard to get ahead in an established company because most of them require some kind of degree so those with experience and street smarts get shafted so the next best thing is to run your own shop as for lack of funding, most university grads are usually broke when they’re done school, so they would be in the same situation as someone without a degree take care Was this answer helpful?
