Fortune Magazine recently revealed that 68% of the richest people in the world have a four-year degree, and 52 of them come from Harvard.

The study focused on the world’s billionaires. It was made with the help of Wealth X, which is a market research firm that promotes businesses to super-rich customers, and UBS, which who handles billionaire’s wealth management.

Besides 52 billionaires graduating from Harvard, there are also undergraduates who made it big, like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. Harvard has the most billionaire alumni, followed by the University of Pennsylvania, which has 28 billionaire alumni.

Fortune Magazine has also revealed that the population of billionaires from all over the world has increased by 7 percent. There are 2,325 billionaires in the world today, which is the highest recorded number.
