(Businessweek) — After graduating from the University of Kentucky in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, Nick Such accomplished the near-impossible: He somehow managed to get accepted into the MBA program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, which accepts about 6 percent of applicants, a tiny fraction of whom are, like him, fresh out of college. Two years later, as his two-year deferral was coming to an end, he did the near-incomprehensible: He told Stanford thanks, but no thanks. A fledgling entrepreneur, Such had hoped an MBA would be a good way to advance his career. But after forging his own path, he decided to defer his MBA indefinitely and backed out of the Stanford GBS Class of 2013 at the beginning of August. “An MBA would be an incredible experience, open a lot of doors, and probably change me as a person for the better. There are a lot of lessons to be learned from that environment,” Such says. “But I came to the decision I’m way too excited about what I’m doing now.”
