15-year-old boy earns Bachelor’s degree from US university, set to bag Masters degree at 17 years old

A brilliant boy named Ian Taylor Schlitz has successfully earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Texas, United States at the young age of 15 years old.

Ian Taylor was tested as highly gifted at a very young age. His parent decided to pull him and his sister, Haley, out of public school and instead have them homeschooled as a result of their unique brilliance. At the age of 10, Ian was already taking college-level courses at Tarrant County College in Texas, United States.

He later joined the University of Northern Texas (UNT) to complete his Bachelor’s degree in Integrative Studies at the age of 15. Ian said he took education advice from his sister, Haley, who completed her university education at the age of 16 and got accepted into 9 law schools.

Aside from being a young graduate, Ian is also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a gaming company he established – Kidlamity Gaming. At the time of graduation, Ian was not sure about either pursuing a career in animation or medicine but said he has still a lot of time.

“I’m not sure exactly what I want to do right now. I enjoy running my business. I think I may decide to get my MBA next. My mom is a physician, and I think I may want to be a physician someday. Luckily for me, I have time to pursue an MBA and still go to medical school if I want. That’s one of the best things about early college,” Ian told TCC News.

Ian however enrolled for a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) at Tarleton State University, Texas, United States and is set to graduate in 2023 when he will be 17 years old.

“I am so proud to be done with my undergraduate degree with high honors. I majored in Integrative Studies and selected Learning Technologies as my emphasis because I realize that e-gaming and electronic media can be very valuable tools to use in education. I am 15 years old, and will start my MBA Program in the fall,” Ian wrote on his Facebook page.

Ian noted that he certainly did not achieve his goals alone and thanked everyone who supported his dream.

His father, William Schlitz expressed that parents should “get out of the way to allow young brilliant minds like that of Ian grow beyond the boundaries. “I had to learn to stop trying to put them in the boxes we have created, based on age, in society. Once I learned that, I think I became a better, more supportive parent for their journeys,” he said.
