Yes, a good manager is also a good leader. It takes people's skills, effective and good communication, and charisma. Not everyone who is techy smart or educated will succeed as a leader because they don't have these skills.
Emphasize is on a good manager

To make it into a managerial position you have to have leadership and organization abilities, the ability to organize and get things done.  It's not all about grades and technical abilities.

when you look back at the problem you will see, this kind of differences is not important. when we're in the middle of the process, everything seems like a huge deal. It really isn't. You'll end up in the same place in the end.

looks like you made a good choice. follow your passion and the money will follow you.
Maybe you are right. Maybe the problem is that I'm just so surprised that they even make it into some kind of "leadership" position. Back in school, I had doubts about their intelligence. Now they are calling themselves "Director of Techology", "Director of Business Development", "Head of Business Analytics", etc. I am astonished they made it that far....

I'm working for about 4 years as a developer. My level is still intermediate.

I like my job. It's fun. I like it. I also think I'm good at it. In my last company I was the expert in the programming language we used. And I was the only one who didn't have a degree in computer science. I had to teach the computer science graduates several stuff - from the basics to the more advanced topics. Even in the current company I have above average knowledge about the language.

About a few weeks ago I switched my job in order. I will gain nearly 20% increase in salary by switching to the new company (will start there in July 2019 though).

Just checked on linkedIn my old classmates. One of them is "Head of BI Analytics". He was like at least 1 grade worse than me in every classes we went. I just googled the average salary and it's 20k/y more than what I make. I probably need another 3-4 years before I can catch up with him.

well, looks like you have a change of career. It's only a temporary set back. The main thing is choose wisely your 2nd time around. Do you think software engineering is your forte?

Masters in Engineering. Ph.D. dropout in Engineering. Since then Software Engineer. Now I'm studying part time Computer Science in my 3rd semester.

Comparing with my former class mates, I feel like a loser. One of them went to Harvard, LSE, Science Po and later work for Booz & Company, Goldman Sachs, and European Investment Banking. Others became Ph.D. in Physics, Economics, Sports. Some others are Director of Technologies in some mid/big companies.

Growing up and going to school I always believed I was better than all of them (except for the person who went Harvard, LSE, Science Po, etc. she was like really smart and came from a really good family). But the others were not on par as I was in terms of grades back in high school. Now I'm feeling like left behind...

I went to middle school and high school with her. She was quiet, smart, GPA was around 4.0, same as me. She went to a public University, and she was nowhere near valedictorian status, so no it was not predictable. Everyone thought the valedictorian would make it big, but she is currently only a doctor at Stanford.  In my graduating class we also have a Vietnamese mayor. First youngest and first Vietnamese mayor. His GPA was average and he went to a public university too. Nobody thought he would be a mayor.  -

One of them that went to an IVY league school is an oncologist, so not really.

Do you know her in person? How was she like back in HS? Was it predictable that she would make it big?

One of the girls I graduated high school with now is the CEO and co-founder of a startup company and is listed as one of the most successful young women in tech on Forbes. She only went to a public university, and only had a 4 years degree, but she is now much wealthier than many of the IVY leagues graduates from our high school class.

What is the name of that startup?

Working for a startup is very risky. I'd say the Ivy league graduates will catch up with her in a few years.

Vietnamese parents are actually very idealistic.  Mine have always advised me to choose a career that "benefits society" and "optimizes the good of mankind".  The moment I realized that many riches came from misanthropy and general disdain for the human race was the moment I became financially independent.   I have clazzmates still mired in the vale of tears for being blind disciples to the advise of their Vietnamese parents.

What are you doing for a living?
