The China University Alumni Association (CUAA) released the list of the universities that taught billionaires.
Peking University topped the list of the richest Chinese college graduates with 35 billionaire alumni.
Zhejiang University and Tsinghua University ranked second and third, with 23 and 22 billionaire alumni respectively.
Zhao Deguo, director of the association, said, ‘These billionaire alumni serve to testify that knowledge creates fortune.’
Of the 1,500 billionaires on China’s four major rich lists over the past decade, 30% of them were university graduates, the association said.
The four lists are Hurun China Rich List; Forbes China Rich List; the Southern Weekend Newspaper’s List of New Rich in China (Mainland) and the New Fortune Magazine’s List of China’s 500 Richest.
