In the last few decades, more and more people are going to college to further their education. It's hard to become a scientist, a professor, or a businessperson without getting some sort of college degree--but college isn't always necessary to achieve success. Some people are ready to enter the workforce right after high school. Michael Dell was one of those people. At an early age, Michael was making money using his above-average intellect. The computer company founder began his high-tech career in his college dorm room, selling upgrades for personal computers. Today, Dell Computers is one of the biggest PC manufacturers in the world, selling computers to people around the world. And what's most amazing about his story is that the computer magnate has done it all without a college degree!
