American chief executives most likely to have gained an MBA


The top CEOs in America are far more likely to hold a Master of Business Administration (MBA) than their counterparts in other parts of the world, according to new research.

The research, carried out by Study.EU, looked at the CEOs of the largest public companies on each continent as per the Forbes Global 2000 company ranking, and found that in North America 37pc of the top CEOs held an MBA degree, while just under one in two of the top CEOs in Central and South America held MBA degrees, suggesting they are more relevant in the Americas region.
