Harvard Bus. Review – Top CEO’s

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

After reading the HBR Top 50 CEO’s I was struck by how few of the CEO’s have MBA’s – less then 30% from my quick count.  Interesting thought when you think about how many job postings today are requesting an MBA to get a middle level position.  Will be interesting to track over the next 10 years to see if the number of CEO’s with MBA’s rise as the number of MBA’s in their fields rise -

The question to me to ask is how are the people gaining access to information and are they publishing back on devices that are shared or mobile – Do you have to have a computer to gain access ? Do non-NA sites have more central shared computers that are used ? With netbooks starting at 199 not sure this even matters or is it a price issue – some many questions so little information presented and why people would look at this and try to make forecasts or decisions is very interesting to think about
