The Educational Background of Business & Government Leaders

4/3/2017; 59 minutes

Is recruitment into corporate and government leadership jobs concentrated among graduates of elite private universities? Steven Brint, UC Riverside Professor of Sociology and Public Policy, presents findings from a study of the backgrounds of nearly 4000 top corporate executives and government officials drawn from 15 sectors (including government). The findings are indicative of corporate and government leaders being drawn disproportionately from elite private institutions.
