The “Spears School Tributes: 100 for 100” list comes as part of an ongoing celebration of the school’s 100th anniversary of business education at OSU. As the name suggests, it honors the top 100 graduates since the school began in 1914.
The school has produced over 43,000 graduates, many of whom have gone on to lead highly-successful careers. Honorees for the “Spears School Tributes” make up the top echelon of those successful alumni. Honorees were first nominated by their peers. Of those nominated, 100 were selected by a panel of OSU business school alumni as exemplary representatives of all graduates. As put by the school themselves:
“These tributes represent a rich history and diversity of experience among those who earned a business degree from OSU.”
