Bloomberg names Marquette a top 10 destination for tech CEOs

This new list ("Top 10 Colleges for Tech CEOs") is great news not only for proud graduates of Marquette University and passionate Milwaukeeans like myself, but for the collective technology and startup scene in greater Milwaukee.  Indeed, MU was named No. 6 on Bloomberg's list of colleges for tech CEOs. 

Milwaukee's always been an under rated college town, and the more exposure our institutions of higher learning can get the better. 

Here's what Bloomberg had to say about Marquette:

6. Marquette University
Milwaukee doesn't have a lot of tech startups, but that hasn't stopped Marquette from producing five graduates who have gone on to lead companies in the digital business world. Ralph Quinsey was a Golden Eagle before he became the CEO of TriQuint Semiconductor, which builds components for electronics makers including Apple.

To compile this list, Bloomberg Rankings analyzed the alma maters of 250 chief executive officers of U.S. tech companies with a market value of more than $1 billion.  No. 1 on the list?  Princeton.
