On Tuesday, Fortune.com released its list of 2017’s 50 Most Powerful Latinas, and four FIU alumnae made the list.

From Fortune.com: The 50 Most Powerful Latinas are executives running Fortune 500 companies, large private firms, and a few impressive entrepreneurs leading global companies. The four-criteria used were: the size and importance of the woman’s business in the global economy, the health and direction of the business, the arc of the woman’s career—résumé and runway ahead—and their social and cultural influence.
