The only school rated higher than Penn State for producing CEOs was Stanford University. Penn State was rated above Harvard Business School, University of California, Berkeley, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Wharton School. The only other public university on the list was Berkeley.
From the article:
“It has been recognized elsewhere as one of the top 10 universities in the country for producing Fortune 500 CEOs, including Baker Hughes CEO Martin Craighead and CH2M CEO Jacqueline Hinman. And one of Penn State’s richest alums, Terrence Pegula, who is worth $4.3 billion, owns the Buffalo Sabres and the Buffalo Bills.”
