The study tracked the work days of 27 CEOs for three months each
CEOs are busy. That’s no surprise.
But a new study from Harvard Business School gets into granular detail about how CEOs spend their time and what’s eating at their schedule. Launched in 2006, the study tracked the work days of 27 CEOs for three months each.
The research showed that CEOs work long hours, including during vacations and on weekends: an average of 9.7 hours per weekday, with nearly four more hours on weekends and 2.4 hours on vacation.

According to the study, CEOs have an average of 37 meetings each week, accounting for 72 percent of their work time.
