The university landing in the top 10 list of Most Successful Univeristues for CEOs and Founders according to the website dojo.

When it comes to engineering and business, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is extremely highly rated in the US. Out of the top 50 alumni we analysed at this university, 35 of the entrepreneurs held the role of CEO or Founder, a whopping 76%.
