It’s not necessary. It’s all about what you know and how good you are at your job. There are people in many companies at the director / c Suite level that don’t even have degrees and get prompted because they’re damn good at their jobs. And I promise you, there’s nothing you can learn at school that you can’t learn online in the tech field

It’s not required, as MB1 mentioned competencies will get you far. It can help in certain companies, but I’d ask myself if you’re really interested in what Director/SVP entails
