At business school (especially the prestigious ones), there are profs without PhDs, especially accounting professors.
How come they're allowed to teach? I don't get it

If there is one thing I've learned it's that a fancy degree doesn't make you smart, intelligent in a general sense I've known a few people who have these types of things but yet are idiots. They also don't make you a good teacher/professor the only thing it proves is that you went to a good school and got the education. Which is all anyone cares about now a days.
There are plenty of people who don't have things like PHD's or similar degree's that are better professors then the ones who have them.
And of course just because someone has the knowledge doesn't mean they will make a good teacher. You have to have the drive. the passion the want to explain things and educate your students. So that they don't go out into the world making fools of themselves or their professions, but also so they can carve a better life out for themselves. That's what separates the good teachers from the bad teachers not some silly piece of paper.0

Because you don't necessarily need a PhD to be a prof, it's just more school and maybe sometimes more knowledge about YOUR own field but not necessarily looked down upon if you don't have one, with PhD degrees, you may have more career choices.. at the same time, you can gain a higher salary thats about it.0
