Edu:Where Fortune 500 CEOs went to college
Long before corner offices and eye-popping salaries, Fortune 500 CEOs were just like any other college student, living in dorms, downing brewskies at nickel beer night, and pulling all-night study sessions. Ok, maybe they weren’t exactly like the average college student, but these powerful leaders did cultivate their business smarts at universities across the country.
U.S. News & World Report breaks down the college choices for the 500 CEOs and dug up some interesting trivia tidbits, including:
Harvard University was the most popular school amongst the CEOs, awarding 58 degrees.
The only non-Ivy League school in the top five was the University of Wisconsin—Madison.
