In a paper written by Bentley College economists Patricia M. Flynn and Michael A. Quinn, the authors state: We find evidence that Economics is a good choice of major for those aspiring to become a CEO [chief executive officer]. When adjustwith undergraduate degrees in Economics are shown to have had a greater likelihood of becoming an S\&P 500 CEO than any other major. A list of famous economics majors published by Marietta College includes business leaders Elon Musk, Warren Buffett, Donald Trump, David Rockefeller, Ted Turner, Bill Belichick, Diane von Furstenberg, and Sam Walton, as well as Presidents George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan and Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Why might studying economics be particularly good preparation for being the top manager of a corporation or a leader in government?
