Which universities produce the wealthiest people?


We all love exciting tales of billionaire drop-outs who hit the bigtime with little to zero higher education, but aside from a few famous overnight success stories, the path to mega wealth for most of the world’s billionaires began with receiving a degree diploma from a university.

When considering the factors behind the success of these billionaires, one question on our mind is ‘to what extent does the university they graduate from shape their future success?’

Now, thanks to this detailed data visualization from education, we know which 100 of these universities create the wealthiest graduates internationally. Their findings are based on the Forbes 2018 Billionaires list, and while some of the results may come as a surprise to you, others might not! One thing is certain though: the correlation between high academic standards and future earning ability may be stronger than was once thought.

There are numerous Indian businesspeople who have gained international recognition for the enormous wealth they’ve earnt in their respective professions. Furthermore, it appears that nearly all have also obtained some form of college education. India’s three richest men, Mukesh Ambani ($40bn), Azim Premji ($18bn) and Lakshmi Mittal ($18bn) have all attained either a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Mumbai, Kolkata or the US.
