The latest in this summer’s slew of super prestigious and important accolades: Business Insider has named PrezBo as one of New York’s Top 10 Best CEOs To Work For. Cool and collected as always, he sits at the number six spot, sandwiched between the CEOs of J. Crew and Coach. Here’s their original accompanying PrezBio, in which it was erroneously stated that he ended Columbia’s ROTC program:
Bollinger is the only non-profit CEO on the list. Before Columbia, he was president of the University of Michigan. He was raised in the small town of Baker City (pop. 9,828), in eastern Oregon.
Lee is popular on the Manhattan campus, and is affectionately known as “PrezBo” by his students.
He has faced controversies over allowing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak at the school, and for ending the school’s ROTC program.[Update, 6/1: This sentence has since been removed 'cause he didn't do that.]
Under his presidency, Columbia has remained one of the top overall schools in the country, and its business school ranked 5th in the nation last year.
The praise is all well and good, but we can’t help but wonder: for the love of god, how could they forget to mention that hair?
