Mukesh Ambani, who heads India’s most valuable company Reliance Industries, has been ranked among top five best performing CEOs in the world by the prestigious Harvard Business Review.

Mr. Ambani, the only Indian to feature among top 50 CEOs, is in the same league as Steve Jobs of Apple, Yun Jong—Yong of Samsung Electronics, Russian energy firm Gazprom’s Alexey Miller and John Chambers of Cisco Systems.

He is also ranked number two among the top 10 emerging market CEOs with Miller at the top.

K. V. Kamath of ICICI Bank is the other Indian in the list of Top 10 Emerging Market CEOs. He is ranked at number 9.

The Harvard Business Review said it ranked CEOs of large public traded companies in a study conducted over 2000 CEOs worldwide. The entire group represented 48 nationalities and companies based in 33 countries.

It put Mr. Ambani in the list of “up—through—the—ranks leaders” along with the Samsung boss.

“Among the up—through—the—ranks leaders on our list are Yun Jong—Yong, who joined Samsung straight out of college and worked there 30 years before becoming CEO, and Mr. Mukesh Ambani, who joined RIL in 1981, when it was still a textile company run by his father.
