These skills help an individual provide decisive guidance to faculty and other academic department leaders. This guidance can ultimately lead to an institution's ability to help students succeed.

    The chief academic officer is one of the most pivotal people in this power structure, responsible for broadly overseeing teaching and learning within a school. The curriculum and other academic policies at a college or university are set by the CAO, who has direct responsibility for maintaining high standards of faculty performance and student achievement.

    As someone who reports directly to the university president, the CAO also has to summarize information and present it in a way that will enable the president to make a quick decision. The role of the CAO sometimes involves being the intermediary between trustees, faculty and the university president, as well as setting the experience of the student body. This large volume of potentially contentious negotiation means CAOs must combine people skills with encyclopedic knowledge and a calm demeanor.

    In this issue of CEO Insights, we bring you a list of `Top 10 Chief Academic Officers­ 2022' who have leveraged their extensive industry expertise and experience for the growth and profit of the respective organisations in which they have served. The following list has been prepared after being closely scrutinized by a distinguished panel of judges including CXOs, analysts and our editorial board.
