SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Magellan Health, Inc. (NASDAQ:MGLN) today announced that it has been selected as one of Fortune Magazine's World's Most Admired Companies.

Fortune collaborated with Korn Ferry Hay Group on a survey of corporate reputations, beginning with a universe of approximately 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in Fortune's Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more. The list was winnowed to the highest revenue companies in each industry, a total of 680 in 28 countries. To determine the best regarded companies in 51 industries, Korn Ferry Hay Group asked executives, directors and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company's score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.
