CEO school

NetworkWorld.com set out to document what it saw as the myth – abetted by Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg lore – of the brilliant Ivy dropout who, freed from academe, soars as a high-tech titan.

The technology site compiled a list, Top Ten Colleges for Tech CEOs, which “analyzed the educational backgrounds of the 50 highest-paid and most powerful CEOs in the U.S. tech industry.” (“Most tech CEOs have at least one graduate degree,” the site reports.)

Two Cornellian CEOs made the list: Lowell McAdam ’76 of Verizon, left, and Dan Hesse, MBA ’77, of Sprint Nextel.

NetworkWorld has Cornell locked in a six-way tie for fourth place.
