The main campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is a lot closer to Motor City than Silicon Valley, but the Wolverines have had a big appetite for running tech companies.

Eric Lefkofsky, who recently took over as CEO of Groupon, and Paul Rooke, who runs printer maker Lexmark, are Michigan alumni. Steve Singh, who runs the travel expenses company Concur Technologies, and Bobby Kotick, the animated CEO of Activision Blizzard, also went to Michigan but didn't stay until graduation.
