Ever want to be a billionaire? While there isn’t any set formula for achieving such a feat, it turns out that certain universities are more likely than others to make you a billionaire. Due diligence firm Wealth-X has just published a list of the world’s universities ranked according to the number of alumni they have worth over $1 billion.

This is how they compiled their data:

“Wealth-X Research reviews hundreds of wealth identifiers using more than 1,100 intelligence sources: paid and open source, online and in print. Our highly skilled analysts assess all asset holdings, including privately and publicly held businesses and investible assets; inclusive of real estate, aircraft, yachts, artwork and collectibles.

Using our proprietary valuation model, we complete a total Net Worth valuation. In addition, we calculate Liquid Assets by taking into consideration both positive cash flows; including received salaries, bonuses, dividends and asset sales; as well as negative cash flows; including major gifts, asset purchases, paid taxes and debt. This process is meticulous in order to present the best understanding and analysis of an individual’s wealth.”
