The No. 1 company in last year's Fortune 500 was Walmart, with US$500 billion (S$677 billion) in revenue. That would make its chief executive officer Douglas McMillon a pretty important and powerful executive, don't you think? Can you guess where he went to college? The University of Arkansas. He has an MBA, too - from the University of Tulsa.
Second on the list was Exxon Mobil. Its CEO Darren Woods went to Texas A&M University.
