Research Watch: The Economics Edge

Noch ärger: und das bei der Performance der Ökonomen im letzten Jahrzehnt (Finanzkrise etc.). hfk
Economics isn’t a popular major: Just 1.6% of grads earned a degree in the discipline in 2006. But according to a 2010 study byPatricia M. Flynn and Michael A. Quinn of Bentley University, economics majors are disproportionately overrepresented among S&P 500 CEOs—which suggests that, historically at least, it’s the major that offers the best probability of reaching the corner office. Business administration majors, for instance, were only 39% as likely as economics majors to become chief executives.
