Based on 44 CEOs from UK-based companies with less than 50 employees
- British CEOs are educated and experienced : the Silicon Valley myth according to which CEOs are inexperienced college drop-outs does not apply in the UK... yet : the average UK CEO holds a bachelor degree and has 13 years' experience under his belt.
- MBAs are not the key to getting the top job: with only 15% of UK CEOs holding an MBA, it looks like across all industries, MBAs are not as valued as they are in Financial Services or Consultancy.
- CEOs are not greedy: with only 35% paying themselves a bonus, CEOs are clearly sensitive to their company's needs and are therefore likely to forego a bonus payment.
