Most Powerful Women in Business 2015

(CC) Fortune Live Media/FlickrFortune has produced this year’s list of the most powerful women in business. Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors, picks up top honors, followed by Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo, in second place and Ginni Rometty, CEO, Chairman, and President of IBM, in third.

The magazine compiles the list by ranking leaders by criteria that include the size and importance of the woman’s business in the global economy, the business’s health, the path of the woman’s career and influence on society and culture. Last year, the same five women topped Fortune’s ranking — which considers factors such as the size and importance of her business in the economy and the company’s overall health — and only 11 of the women on the list this year have never been on it before.
