It’s back to school time and while the perpetual debate in StartupLandia is whether or not a college degree is actually worth it for founders, there’s no question that tons of current and soon-to-be college students are interested in jumping onto the startup scene.

The team over at put together this awesome infographic that breaks down where the most successful startup founders completed their degrees. Their metric is graduates who have founded VC-funded companies and (surprise, surprise) Stanford tops the the list.


Check out the rest of this infographic for information about each of the top schools, including notable alumni and special services offered. Maybe it really is worth getting that piece of paper after all…
