• Two alums named among Barron’s top 30 CEOs

    Mark HurdAccording to Barron’s Magazine, the weekly financial publication put out by Dow Jones & Company, two of the world’s top 30 corporate leaders are Baylor grads! (The article is also on MSN.com.)

    Mark Hurd, a 1979 graduate and CEO of technology giant Hewlett-Packard, made the list for the first time; Bob Simpson, BBA ’70 and MS ’71, is CEO of XTO Energy and appears on Barron’s list for the fourth straight year.

    Today’s Hankamer School of Business students have some big shoes to fill when it comes to following alums like Hurd and Simpson, but given the sort of honors the business school receives every year, I have no doubt they’ll be up to it.

    Sic ’em, business school alums!
