Ivy League Education and Business Success

From MSN's business news section:

Most CEOs went to state universities or small schools,,,not the Ivy League.

So does attending and graduating from an Ivy League university increase or decrease your chances of being a corporate CEO?

It increases your changes, and dramatically.

About 1% of college graduates attended an Ivy League school--but about 10% of CEOs did. So you're more than 10 times as likely to become a CEO if you attend an IVY League school than if you don't.
