Contrary to Thomas Stanley’s “The Millionaire Next Door,” which counterintuitively deduced a significant number of millionaires are less educated and employed in blue collar occupations, AffluenceIQ’s data suggests that among multi-millionaires, education is paramount. Of the 1,825 profiles scrutinized, more than 85% attended college, and more than 55% had graduate degrees.

And if anyone says a Harvard degree isn’t an important ingredient for accumulating mega wealth—they should think again. While certainly not a prerequisite for attaining super affluence, Harvard graduates represent a staggering 23% of Massachusetts’ uber rich. Approximately 18% of Massachusetts’ richest attended Harvard Business School.

“One of the most fascinating aspects of this database, is how a premium education is a common underlying factor among the super wealthy,” said Publisher Michael Stern. “Even in industries like construction, wine distribution, and beer making—segments which one might think require less education—we found highly educated CEOs. Examples include Anthony Consigli, who runs Consigli Construction; Carl Martignetti, who co-owns wine distributor Martignetti Companies, and Richard Doyle, who co-founded Harpoon Brewery – all three of whom attended Harvard.
