Here’s Why UPenn Produces More Billionaires Than Any Other School In The World

The University of Pennsylvania has produced more billionaire undergraduate alumni than any other school in the world, according to a recent report from Wealth-X.

25 current billionaires received their bachelor’s degrees at Penn, the most of any school on Wealth-X’s list. The only other colleges to produce similar numbers were Harvard University — with 22 undergrad alum billionaires — and Yale University — with 20.

Although UPenn is home to the Wharton School, which is considered to be a top business school for both undergraduate and graduate students, Wealth-X president David Friedman told Business Insider that the school’s powerhouse reputation doesn’t have a huge impact on its ultra-wealthy alumni base.
