Oh dear…he said (and repeatedly filed at the SEC) that he has a degree in “accounting and computer science” – very useful if you want to run Yahoo. However, a hedge fund agitating for change and board seats at Yahoo has found out that it is actually only an accounting degree. Less useful. The fund is calling for the CEO, Scott Thompson, to be fired by Monday 7 May.
UPDATE 8 May 2012: Mr Thompson has now apologised for the disruption caused by disclosure of his incorrect CV, if not for the incorrect CV itself.
UPDATE 14 May 2012: He has now left Yahoo.
