The new ranking comes from a LinkedIn analysis of its database of 20 million college grads, and identified alumni of these schools as founders of the most companies with 10 or more employees.
Who has the most billionaires?
Stanford University took the #1 spot in the new ranking, followed by MIT at #2 and Harvard at #3.

Among those billionaire grads: Steve Ballmer (’77), Phil Falcone (’84) and Sumner Redstone (’44).

California Institute of Technology took the #4 spot, followed by University of California, Berkeley, at #5.
Brown was beat out in the ranking by fellow Ivies University of Pennsylvania (#6), Dartmouth College (#7), Princeton (#9), and Yale (#11). Forbes made special mention of Brown alum Steven Rattner, cofounder of the Quadrangle Group, who graduated from Brown in 1974.
