The Billionaires census 2014, reveals 16 out of the top 20 schools with the most billionaire undergraduate alumni were located in the US.

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).

Another startling fact that came to light from this list is that higher education is not a prerequisite to achieving billionaire status with over as 35% of the 2,325 billionaires in the world missing a tertiary-level degree. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg being the most prominent of them all.
