I don't know if you're semi-joking given that it's the interwebs, but the statistics were showing that OUT of the successful businessmen, the larger proportion tended to have postgraduate qualifications
Of course they teach that, statistics are bent, twisted and falsified to make you believe whatever the person using the statistics wants you to believe. Its part of their agenda to promote that you have more chance of success with your degree. They dont then tell you that 95 out of 100 people* with postgraduate qualifications fail in business or that in those statistics they use people who are successful businessmen that are actually only successful because they are well payed employees and dont actually own the company.
I was reading the official police Road deaths figure for a certain country last night and the number was around 70,000 deaths. Their official figures also showed that countries road deaths had been decreasing for approx 3 years. The figures for that country given by the coroners office on death certificates as cause of death as a road accident for that same year was well over 200, 000 people. Then I saw an article by a reporter saying that another country had now taken over that country as having the most road deaths in the world with 110,000 road deaths and they went on to repeat the false statistics saying the other country had decreased road deaths over the last 3 years period. Statistics are bent and twisted and then people like reporters, road law makers and University Professors use them as if they were fact.
Degree's allow you to become an employee for a businessman were hopefully you can learn to become successful in business.
*(95 out of 100 people with postgraduate qualifications fail..... this statistic may not be accurate, but it suits my agenda.)
