Colleges that Produce the Most Fortune 500 CEOs

As acceptances and rejections roll in, it’s time for a reminder that success in life is generally more about what you make of the college experience than what school you attend. Bestcolleges.com provides various rankings of schools. A recent one is schools with the most Fortune 500 CEO Graduates. Yes, the top 10 is littered with the usual suspects. But it’s worth knowing is that the University of Houston, which was the second-lowest rated national university in US News & World Report’s 2013 rankings, is among only 38 schools nationwide that have graduated more than 1 Fortune 500 CEO. On that criterium, it ranks equally with Brown, Georgetown, Duke and Berkeley. Public school fans might note that 16 of the top 38 kingmakers are public, and while that list includes plenty of “public Ivies,” it also includes San Diego State, Kansas, Minnesota,  Oklahoma, Colorado and Wayne State.
