Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School has been ranked among the top 10 schools that produce the most Fortune 500 CEOs. Some of the CEOs who have come through Mays Business School include Bruce Broussard ’84 of Humana, David Cordani’88 of Cigna, and Jeff Miller’88 of Halliburton.

The rankings, compiled by the executive search firm Kittleman & Associates, analyzed the resumes of every chief operating officer of a Fortune 500 company to determine which colleges produce the most industry leaders.

Texas A&M is tied for No. 6 with the University of Pennsylvania, the University of California-Berkeley, and Purdue University with six Fortune 500 CEOs.

Placing first is the University of Wisconsin with 14 CEOs, followed by second-place Harvard University (12), No. 3 Cornell University (10), No. 4 University of Michigan (8), and No. 5 Stanford University (7).

“We know that many universities are providing an exceptional education, but are there institutions that have a track record of developing strong leaders? Looking at this data, it’s clear that some universities have the right ‘secret sauce’ in helping mold successful executives,” said Kittleman & Associates of the survey.

With an enrollment of more than 6,400 students, Mays Business School is frequently ranked among the top business programs in the United States. It is currently ranked in the top 20 nationally by U.S. News & World Report, The Financial Times, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, The Princeton Review, Forbes and other publications. Mays Business School has a worldwide network of more than 62,000 former students.
