Most innovative company CEOs – Chirag Patel

Based on the list from http://www.forbes.com/innovative-companies/list/ 2014 for 100 companies, I checked CEO educational background. I could not find accurate information for some. This list is 99% accurate tho.

Here’s the spreadsheet: 150314_ceo_inno

Interesting facts from this analysis:

32 – undergraduate work in Engineering or Science
40 – undergraduate work in business, finance, accounting or marketing
4 – undergraduate work in pharmacy or medicine
15 – undergraduate work in Law, History, Philosophy etc

11 – master’s in engineering or science
36 – MBA
3 – MD

Total 41 bachelor’s, 44 master’s, 3 PhD

One more myth buster: 11 have Engineering + MBA track and 21 have Business/Accounting/Finance + MBA track.
