Should I start a company or go to design school

I am in my late thirties and I love designing new products. For my money is it better to start a business or borrow 40K a year and go to a great design schools. How come I never hear of Drexel U for design/ entrepreneurship. T.


Maybe you can tell us about your background and the business you want to do.

Yeah, need more details. Are you going to start the business after school anyway? Or use the degree to get a job?

I am in my late thirties and I love designing new products.

What products would those be… .? Or are you “dabbling”, so to speak?

I currently have a patent pending product in the works. I am also creating a new cell phone case, a couple of storage devices for electronic devices, and creating more user friendly product enhancements for the golf industry. I do not have any previous college experience or professional art classes. I have been artistic all my life and enjoy solving a need or enhancing products. Thanks for the feed back!

I plan on starting the business before or after college. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get a job in doing idea creation or product enhancement, without a degree in design. My personality type is an INFP , if that helps.

Do both.

Start a company – if you need design help hire a designer.

Don’t waste your time and money in school.

If you already have a career and do not plan on working for a company if you decide to go to school for design, then skipp school and start the company. It will be a waste of time and money. Just make sure you hire the right people to do the work that is outside of your knowledge/comfort.
