Penn Alumni Rank High on Fortune 100 CEO List
Penn has been ranked third in a list of universities with the highest numbers of Fortune 100 CEOs among their alumni, according to the U.S. News & World Report. Harvard and Cornell universities took the first and second spots, respectively. Another ranking from the United Kingdom’s Times of Higher Education placed Penn seventh on a list that compared universities from around the world by how many top executives have graduated from their institution. The other American universities in the top 10 on that list were Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Penn alums—all of whom attended Wharton Business School—include Alex Gorsky of Johnson & Johnson, Brian Roberts of Comcast, William Delaney of Sysco, and Roger Crandall of MassMutual.
