Richest MBAs in the world [#permalink] New post 20 Aug 2010, 09:39

Last weekend I stumbled upon the Forbes website while reading some finance related news, and found their list of the World's Billionaires:
http://www.forbes.com/lists/2010/10/bil ... _Rank.html

Just curious to see what these people did for a living, I checked some of them. I saw many MBAs, so I decided to share with you the MBAs of the top 100 of their list, and the business school they graduated from:




The World's Billionaires, Forbes.com
Rank in the top 100NameCitizenshipBusiness SchoolNet Worth in Billion USD
23Michael BloombergUnited StatesHarvard18
33Steven BallmerUnited StatesStanford14.5
36Anil AmbaniIndiaWharton13.7
45John PaulsonUnited StatesHarvard12
48Abigail JohnsonUnited StatesHarvard11.5
51Susanne KlattenGermanyIMD11.1
52Ronald PerelmanUnited StatesWharton11
62Philip KnightUnited StatesStanford10.2
63Ricardo SalinasMexicoTulane University10.1
64Ernesto BertarelliSwitzerlandHarvard10
64George KaiserUnited StatesHarvard10
70Alexei MordashovRussiaUniversity of Northumbria9.9
86Kumar BirlaIndiaLondon Business School7.9
89Ananda KrishnanMalaysiaHarvard7.6
93Len BlavatnikUnited StatesHarvard7.5
93Nobutada SajiJapanUCLA7.5


If you go through the list, you will see many drop outs from college, many from Stanford, many from Harvard. Looks like many found their biggest idea in the classroom and considered not worthy finishing college and made their startup right away.

Thank you!

I get really annoyed by those slides where you can see only one person at a time. If you want to compare, you have to go back and forth, you get lost and forget the information you were looking for. Not really convenient for people like us that work with spreadsheets and tables all day long. Somehow we are built to see information in cells and columns. It's much more interesting.

This is actually an interesting way to view business schools. At the very least, the complete list is more enlightening than the EIU rankings.

It's unbelievable that John Paulson has made it into the top 50 richest in the world, and (based on my quick skim down the list) the 3rd wealthiest investor behind only Soros and Buffett. Just 3 years ago, he was a relative unknown!
