Hedge fund Third Point upped its battle with Yahoo’s board by asserting that Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson does not have the computer science degree claimed on his resume.
In a letter to Yahoo’s board, Third Point CEO Daniel Loeb said that Thompson received a degree in accounting from Stonehill College, but not “accounting and computer science,” as stated on the Yahoo company Web site. Third point said it inquired at Stonehill College and found that it did not offer computer science degrees when he graduated.
Third Point, which owns 5.8 percent of beleaguered Internet company and is seeking more power on the board, also said that the head of Yahoo’s search committee, Patti Hart, has a business administration degree, not the “bachelors in marketing and economics” company filings indicate.
