"I wonder, could getting such formal education ever help one to develop the mentality necessary to go from zero to being in the top ten richest people in the country?"
The question is interesting, but pretty much impossible to answer because the prerequisite to an MBA is an undergraduate degree and, in any decent school, a stated minimum amount of postgraduate work experience (2 years at my school). Nobody starts at zero at the beginning of an MBA.
I think you're really asking if a degree could be the difference between a person being a galactic success or just another middle manager. The answer is on the extreme side of no, but thats because the odds of being one of the ten richest people in the country is roughly 1 in 30 million.

You know what is most fascinating to me about all of this? We are here talking about the products of a company that in less than ten years went from a university project to this nearly-all-conquering online behemoth, with dozens of other companies making their livelihood from following and reporting on their every move, similar to the ecosystem that has grown up around Microsoft. On another thread here, we were talking about the merits of getting an MBA. I wonder, could getting such formal education ever help one to develop the mentality necessary to go from zero to being in the top ten richest people in the country?
