some points in the article

I have got some points in the article.

 

1. To be CEO at an engineering company, technical expertise is necessary.

 

2. The specific details you learnt in the engineering school is not as important as the engineering process/mindset you got trained at the school.

Indeed this article seems smaller than expected and with less weight than expected. However I think with all the comments here is a good opportunity. The EE degree is only a start. Getting to a place depends much on the drive that one has. I agree with that there are many engineers with MBA degrees out there and not many become CEO's. And perhaps of course, many start-up founders are the CEO of their companies... but again, for making a start up, it's necessary to have the proper amount of drive and the good idea and the confidence in one self to trust that the idea is worth making a reality. Door knocking is also among the most important things required. So... the EE degree is only the start. Thanks for the opportunity to display our opinions.

I was kind of expecting this article to be about a company I'd at least heard of, not some no-name startup.

Good article. In addition to the formula prescribed EE+MBA+SHK (School of Hard Knocks), I would add public speaking practice practice practice.

I was CTO of the start-up I co-founded, too. Of course, there were only two of us plus an angel investor, so I was also the entire engineering team, janitor, graphic designer, and half of the marketing team.

It is a given, most anyone can be king of the hill of a start up, when the technical edge really matters.

The example used here is a startup, where the founder is automatically CEO. I do not see a solid argument for the degree significantly assisting you on the way up, which was implied several times, especially with expressions like "making your way to the top..."

I agree the an EE degree and an MBA is a good base for the CEO job. The big thing you have to have is the drive to get to that job and a lot of luck along the way. There are a lot more EE's with MBAs than CEOs.

I would think that the EE degree coupled with the MBA would be a great base for anyone looking to higher level management positions in technical companies. Having some engineering experience and the management degree with practice is a powerful combination.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
