How many of you doing over $1 million gross profit have a college degree?

I'm curious to know... for those of you larger companies out there, how many of you have a Bachelors degree or higher pertaining to landscaping? How many of you have an associates degree pertaining to landscaping?

I'm researching for a course of mine in college, and am eager to see the results.

Thanks again for your participation!

At my last company, a partnership, no one had a degree or even much in the way of college classes. We got up over 3 mil a year. I'm not there yet but will be soon just doing resi maintenance.
