In celebrating its 125th anniversary, McGraw-Hill examines its past and looks ahead to a bright future. One Proud Legacy: Two Powerful Companies traces McGraw-Hill’s roots in the emerging railroad industry and explores the remarkable opportunities to come as it separates into two independent companies, one focused on education, the other on the global capital and commodity markets. Following the sale of McGraw-Hill Education (expected early 2013), the company’s shareholders are anticipated to rename the company McGraw Hill Financial. The new company will include some of the most well-known names in finance and business, including Standard&Poor’s, S&P Capital IQ, S&P Dow Jones Indices, Platts and J.D. Power and Associates. McGraw Hill Financial and McGraw-Hill Education will continue the mission set out by founder James H. McGraw in 1888: give people the insight and essential intelligence they need to make decisions vital for their future.
