We have some exceptionally good news! More than a fifth of all billionaires in the world have studied engineering.

19% of people on the list made their fortune from technology with 68% of them having completed a university degree.

Some people may wish to make their first million by 30 years old, but the wait is on to be a billionaire with an average age of 67 years old. The UK has produced 3% of world's billionaires whilst the USA has produced a staggering 39%.
