Spear’s, a wealth management magazine for super rich people in which they toast themselves via crystal goblets for having it all, conducted a research survey of where millionaires went to college and what they studied. Did you know that if you want to be a millionaire you’re better off getting a degree in engineering, economics, business, or computer science? I guess you can just throw in the towel, English majors! As if we needed yet another reason for people to devalue/make fun of the humanities.
Here are the 10 colleges that birth the most millionaires. Peep the whole list here to see how much your degree is worth.
1. Harvard University
Of course Harvard produces the most millionaires because it is also the school attended the most by millionaires.
2. Harvard Business School
Well Tyra Banks went to Harvard Business School (for like a day), so I guess that pretty much sums it up.
3. Stanford University
Must be all the tech geniuses!
4. University of California
Yeah, but which one though?
5. Columbia University
Seems about right, although I always associate Columbia with the arts.
6. University of Oxford
That’s that (ye) olde, Medieval money.
7. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Again with the science and technology. I suppose it makes sense, though — millionaires are supposed to be innovators.
8. New York University
And this one really strikes me as odd, because I definitely associate NYU with all-black wearing artsy hipsters.
9. University of Cambridge
The best of the best.
10. University of Pennsylvania
It’s all about the Benjamins (Franklin), baby.
