U.S. News and World Report, after researching the educational backgrounds of the CEOs that lead the top 100 companies in the famous Fortune 500, recently released a list of schools that have produced two or more top-100 CEOs. It numbers exactly 12, but among them only five schools have produced three such alumni.

Well, make that four schools. The fifth has three such former students.

Yes, Texas A&M joins an Ivy League quartet of Cornell, Harvard, Princeton and Yale as the nation's only schools to have their own graduates leading three of the nation's top 100 companies. No big deal.

According to a TexAgs post by Scot Walker '90 of the Association of Former Students, the three Aggies in question are: Greg Garland '80 at Philips 66 (No. 7 on the Fortune 500); Bruce Broussard '84 at Humana (No. 58); and David Cordani '88 at Cigna (No. 90).

Not mentioned: whether the amount of Aggies on the list was capped at three in the interest of fairness.

Nah, its just that we only have three grads that are actually working instead of wasting their lives on TexAgs.

2017 Update --> Texas A&M Heads Fortune Magazine CEO List

Quote:

With four former students serving as CEOs of some of the largest companies in the United States, Texas A&M has the most of any university in Texas and is only matched by the University of Michigan. Other schools on the Fortune list include Cornell University and Harvard University, both with three CEO graduates.
