There were some great questions from the students in attendance, but the one theme that was most prevalent was questions about the value of an MBA to an “internet” company. I wish I could have been more encouraging for the Pepperdine students, but while an MBA will open a few doors that might be hard to open otherwise, blogging can also do that!

I totally 100% agree about blogging opening doors to all types of opportunities — particularly in the tech industry. Maybe that realization is the reason that, unlike many of my friends, I have no real desire to go to grad school.
