How common are CEOs with a marketing or business degree?

Percentages of CEOs with marketing or business degrees change over time, but February 2006 research by SpencerStuart suggests that around fifteen percent of SP 500 Company CEOs have business administration undergraduate degrees, whereas about twenty percent have engineering degrees. Around 40 to 50 percent of CEOs at these companies have MBA graduate degrees which may or may not have emphasis in a functional area like marketing. Some CEOs do possess technical experience in marketing.
