The Schools Most Likely to Produce Rich People US dominates the list By Kevin Spak, Newser User Posted Mar 3, 2013 11:54 AM CST 24 comments Comments Students walk through the Harvard Law School area on the campus of Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., in this Nov. 19, 2002 file photo. (AP Photo/Chitose Suzuki, file) (Newser) – Most of the world's richest people have something in common: They went to school in the US. Wealth-X has compiled a report on which universities worldwide boast the most "ultra high net worth" alumni—defined here as those with $30 million or more—and US universities dominate the list. You will probably not be surprised to learn that Harvard tops the list, with almost twice as many millionaire graduates as the next highest school (the University of Pennsylvania). Here's the top 10: Harvard University—2,964 University of Pennsylvania—1,502 Stanford University—1,173 Columbia University—889 New York University—828 University of Chicago—658 Massachusetts Institute of Technology—581 Yale University—568 Cornell University—528 Princeton University—508 Only three schools from outside the US made the top 20. Another big loser: women. Almost all the "UHNW" individuals counted were men, with Northwestern having the greatest percentage of women with 15%. The Atlantic also points out that California schools did very well for themselves—apparently being close to Hollywood and Silicon Valley helps. Most of the UHNWs are classified as "self made," though almost a quarter of Brown and Cornell's entries got their money exclusively through inheritance.
