how much one earn is not indication of how good someone is. How much result
that person get for the company over long long period of time is. There is
many study on this. Start with HBR study of 100 best CEO of all time. If
you want more (from a management professor), pick "Managers Not MBAs" book
by Henry Mintxberg

For board position, if you must insist on academic degree, at leats make it

(Business) MBA,  or (Law) LLM  and NOT engineering or IT. If you don't
understand why, then u must go read again what the job of board is -- it is
not to build network or write app. It is to help run company (strategy,
bugeting, competition, deals, partnership)

and if they still push their academic achievement, it is because maybe not
have any accomplishment to show.
