One elite U.S. college has earned the distinction of being the top billionaire-producing university. Find out which colleges award the most degrees to the world's uber-wealthy.

Have you ever wondered where — or if — the world’s billionaires attend college?

According to research firm Wealth-X, a large majority (70 percent) of the world’s 2,473 ultrawealthy citizens earned a college degree. And when it comes time for a future billionaire to pick a university to attend, one school tops them all — Harvard University.

According to a Wealth X billionaire study, which was released last month, the elite Massachusetts university has awarded twice as many degrees to today’s billionaires (134) as its closest runner-up, Stanford (67).

CNBC asked Wealth-X to crunch the numbers and produce a list of the top 19 colleges for future billionaires. We’ve highlighted the top 10 universities from that list below:

  1. Harvard University: 134 degrees awarded to today’s billionaires
  2. Stanford University: 67
  3. University of Pennsylvania: 54
  4. Columbia University: 43
  5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology: 31
  6. Cornell University: 26
  7. University of Southern California: 24
  8. Yale University: 23
  9. University of Chicago: 22
  10. New York University: 22

Of course, as CNBC notes, “While we can’t promise billionaire status if you attend one of these institutions, it can’t hurt your odds.”
