Big Ten and UI rank 1st in producing CFOs
The Big Ten is America’s premier conference in producing chief financial officers, and with 15 sitting CFOs, the University is ranked No. 1 out of all other universities in the world.
The study was part of
Crist|Kolder Associates’s annual Volatility Report, which looks at the
backgrounds and measures the turnover of C-Suite executives in a
portfolio of America’s leading companies. It examined the educational
backgrounds of 602 sitting CFOs as of Aug. 1, 2013. It found that 69 of
the CFOs at companies listed in Fortune 500 and S&P 500 — annual
lists of the most profitable corporations in the U.S. — received
undergraduate degrees from the Big Ten.
