Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) has been named to Fortune magazine’s prestigious list of “The World’s Most Admired Companies,” published in the magazine’s March 19 issue. Described as “the definitive report card on corporate reputations,” the Most Admired List is the result of a survey of 3,855 executives, directors, and securities analysts asked to select the 10 companies they admired most. They chose from a list made up of the companies that ranked in the top 25% in last year's Fortune surveys, in addition to those that finished in the top 20% of their industry.
Booz Allen appeared as a top-five most admired company in the “Information Technology Services” industry. To determine top industry lists, a sample of executives, directors, and analysts were asked to rate companies in their own industries on nine criteria, from investment value to social responsibility.
The surveys were conducted on behalf of Fortune magazine by Hay Group. View the rankings.
