More millionaires have degrees in engineering than any other subject, according to a new study from WealthInsight.

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."

However, when only examining graduate degrees, MBAs rise to the top of the list — 12.8% of the millionaires WealthInsight looked at have one.

The top 10 degrees that millionaires earn:

  1. Engineering

  2. MBA

  3. Economics

  4. Law

  5. Business Administration

  6. Commerce

  7. Accounting

  8. Computer Science

  9. Finance

  10. Politics
