NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wealth-X, the ultra high net worth (UHNW) business development solution for Educational Institutions, Global Private Banks, Luxury Brands and Non-Profits, has released its University UHNW Alumni Rankings Special Report, identifying global universities with the highest UHNW alumni populations.
Harvard University has the largest UHNW alumni population at 2,964. Harvard University is also alma mater to 52 billionaires, the highest count globally. Among the Public Universities, University of Virginia ranks the highest with 499 UHNW alumni.
Gender representation sees MIT with the highest percentage of male UHNW alumni at 98%. Northwestern University has the highest percentage of female UHNW alumni at 15%.
Commenting on the report, David S. Friedman, Wealth-X President, noted, "While it is expected that private universities would lead the rankings, public universities had quite a robust showing.

Wealth-X CEO, Mykolas D. Rambus added, "Our analysis sheds new light on relationships between UHNW alumni and their almae matres. It reinforces the importance of identifying UHNW alumni for educational institutions, which look to enhance relationships with future major donors."
