We probably already do.

Seriously though I like the idea that this demonstrates that a qualification on a piece of paper is not the be all and end all. And that paper qualifications don't necessarily equal ability and skill at performing certain roles.
All too often it's taken for granted by default that a paper qualification is a direct indicator of ability to perform a role, and talented people will be rejected from applying for some role yet they may have an abundance of talent in that position.

She could have been rejected and they'd taken on a graduate instead, but the end results could have been far lacking compared to what Karren Brady achieved.
In my first year at Uni, the first introductory talk/chat from a lecturer told us if we wanted to be rich entrenpeneurs then to leave right then! of course he cited Branson and Sugar as evidence but he was probably right .
