As reported by the New Statesman, the study highlights the 10 most popular degrees that millionaires around the world hold, both for undergraduate and graduate studies. While most of the subjects listed are "obvious,"  they note, "few of these degrees turn out to be vocational — most engineering graduates, for example, are not engineers but entrepreneurs."
