New Research reveals Top-50 universities producing millionaire alumni

University of Oxford comes in fourth place, beating University of Cambridge in eleventh, while University of London (12), London School of Economics (31) and Imperial College (50) also make the list.

The University of Manchester is among the best fifty universities in the world for producing millionaire alumni, ranking in thirty-seventh position.

Overall the United States dominates the list, with thirty-one of the top fifty universities for producing millionaire alumni being based in the country.

Australia follows behind the UK with four universities, including two in Melbourne and two in Sydney.

Mexico and Ireland both made the list with Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM) at number thirty-six and Trinity College at forty seven.

Commenting on the findings, Head of WealthInsight, Oliver Williams said: “Though the US far outnumbers the UK by sheer volume of millionaires, ranking second on this list by number of institutions is telling of the prowess that the UK’s universities have globally.

“Oxford and Cambridge are household names for academic brilliance the world over, and while not all their graduates go onto earn their millions, these universities do provide fertile recruiting grounds for some of the world’s leading corporations.

    While I don’t think creating millionaires is the only (or the best) criteria for university excellence, it is an interesting list. Pleased to see my first University (London) at number 12. Puzzled to see Imperial College listed separately from London University though. I thought it was part of London University?

    I also wish they’d published the whole top 50.
