I received my bachelors degree in order to work for ESPN. Most companies require you to have a BS or BA. In addition to gaining educational knowledge, going to college teaches you time management skills as you need to manage your classes, homework, and extracurricular activities. While at college, I'd suggest interning at as many places as you can. This will give you experience and networking opportunities and it's a great way to learn what you're interested in pursuing for a career.
