The most popular degree achieved by the world’s 100 wealthiest people is…NONE.

Of the world’s 100 wealthiest people, 32 of them never finished college. Son of a bitch. You’re telling me all I needed to do was dropout of college and my life would be perfect?

Obviously I don’t actually think I could have achieved great wealth and success if I didn’t attend college — I skipped so much class that I practically DIDN’T attend college — but I’m pissed that these people are so brilliant, in some way, shape or form, that they didn’t need a college degree to succeed.

After NONE, engineering came in as  the second most held degree with 22 of the world’s top 100 having majored in it during college. Followed by business, with 12. (Obligatory link out.)

Below is the rest of the breakout, along with some other stats about billionaires and their money to ruin your fucking day.
