The 20 universities around the world that produce the richest grads
Updated: Aug 29, 2019
Elite colleges and universities enroll — and graduate — some of the wealthiest people on earth.
Each year, research firm Wealth-X identifies the colleges and universities with the highest number of “ultra high net worth” (UHNW) alumni, defined as those with a net worth of greater than $30 million.
Wealth-X first collects a sample of ultra-wealthy individuals known to have a diploma, including both undergraduate and graduate degrees, from colleges and universities around the world, and tallies their total wealth as a group. Researchers then use this sample and Wealth-X’s database to estimate how many super-rich alumni each school has graduated in total.
