They likely all have advanced degrees, that's a perquisite for black executives in corporate America. That's why I like diddy for showing a different perspective of an entrpenuar.

out of the 20 listed (and there are 2 people listed for one spot, they are married)

3 do not have a degree, 7 have a Bachelor's degree and 10 have 2 or more degrees

I said at least 11 before since majority is more than 50% lol

85% have a degree (or degrees)

I havent read anything except for the thread subject line, BUT I feel that the students feeling about being for or against having Puffy as the commencement speaker are an internal campus issue and it is disgusting, petty and divisive for this info to have been leaked to the media or blogs as is unnecessarily airing dirty laundry.
