New Delhi: Want to become a billionaire? Get a Harvard degree first! That's right because one of the most important steps that you can take right now in becoming a billionaire is by getting an education from the right school.



In a study conducted earlier this year, market research firm Wealth-X has looked into how many graduates of high-end schools are worth more than $30 million each — placing them in the “ultra-high-net-worth” bracket, and Harvard took the top spot, with more than twice as many UHNW graduates than any other institution. The number of Harvard alumni who are billionaires were 52 – more than any other American university by a long shot. Additionally, 3,000 graduates of Harvard University are worth more than $30 million (each).

The list compiled makes one thing clear that although each school has its own character, there are a few traits in common. Nearly all of the top 10 for billionaires are elite, private universities. Let's take a look at them:

10. University of Cambridge
 
Number of billionaire alumni: 11

Total wealth: $48 billion
 
The University of Cambridge is the only school in the list that is not located in the United States. The British school has 11 billionaires with a combined net worth of $48 billion. This public research university is located in Cambridge and is considered as the second oldest university in the English-speaking world and the third oldest in the world.
