Where did Mark Zuckerberg finish high school

Jobs, Zuckerberg, Branson & Co | THE most famous dropouts

Leaving school at 16, dropping out of Harvard, one year of high school and finishing.

Sounds like a pretty mixed bag. But all three “careers” have one thing in common: They are the school career of multi-billion dollar economic giants.

It is said that life will be difficult without a university degree. The enormous number of admissions at universities shows that academic titles are in demand. But the title alone is not a guarantee of success.

Neither Microsoft founder Bill Gates has a university degree, nor Apple icon Steve Jobs († 56).

They are more likely to have experience with lecture halls than teachers.

Steve Jobs: A semester at Reed College (1972) that was Steve Jobs' brief university career. His adoptive parents had promised the birth mother that their son would definitely go to college. Instead of in the classroom, his career began in a garage.

Walt Disney: One year of high school and then it was over. The man who made the young and old laugh with films and comics had other plans at the beginning of the 20th century. Disney is still one of the largest international media companies today. After finishing school, no one asked Walt Disney any more questions pretty quickly.

Richard Branson: The dyslexic left school at 16. Learning wasn't his thing. But do. Today radio stations, an airline and a record label belong to his Virgin empire. The Englishman is a real role model for many company founders.

Bill Gates: Getting a place at the renowned Harvard University is more than hopeless for most of them. Microsoft founder Bill Gates had one, but gave up his studies again. Reason: He wanted to take care of his company. Ultimately, it was the right decision for the Silicon Valley thinker. Today he is one of the richest people in the world, runs one of the largest companies in the world, speaks to top politicians about environmental protection and received an honorary doctorate from his former university in 2007.

Mark Zuckerberg: Mark Zuckerberg was just 19 years old when he dropped out of Harvard. He had better plans. In order to be able to exchange ideas with fellow students on the net, he founded the platform Facebook. The social network connects the world today. Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest self-made billionaire of all time.
