University of Pennsylvania came in first with 25 billionaires under its belt, followed by HARVARD UNIVERSITY (22), YALE UNIVERSITY (20), the University of Southern California (16), and Princeton (14).
However, 4 foreign universities made the top 20 list: University of Mumbai, India was ranked 9th, which produced altogether 12 billionaires, beating the London School of Economic and Political Science took the 10th spot with 11 billionaires.
The other two non-US institutions are: Lomonosov Moscow State University in Russia (11th spot with 11 billionaires), and ETH Zürich, Switzerland (20th spot with 6 billionaires).
