Boise State University graduates many CEOs


Students who are interested in running a huge corporation may wish to enroll at Boise State University's business programs.

The Idaho-based school has many alumni who are now at the top of their respective companies after earning a degree at the institution. For instance, Steve Appleton, who is the chief executive officer of Micron Technology, became the third youngest individual to hold the position in a Fortune 500 company.

Jim Cathey is part of another technology-based company, holding the position of vice president for Qualcomm. He previously worked at Micron Technology, but his work took him to new heights. For instance, he regularly contributes to publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Forbes and The New York Times. He has won numerous awards in the field as well.

William Agee, who graduated from Boise State in 1958, became the youngest non-family member CEO of a Fortune 100 Company after he was appointed president and CEO of the Bendix Corporation.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, an estimated 2 million CEOs will be employed throughout the U.S. in the coming years.
