Well if you are an aspiring entrepreneur in Nigeria then you have very marginal chances of becoming a billionaire, according to statistics. However, all that can change with the right education, training and determination that will empower you to turn your business idea into reality. Let's have a look at what it takes to become a reputed billionaire in Africa....
The Billionaire Study
Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates area different breed, but they just like any other human being with an outstanding idea and the determination to turn their vision into reality. However, it is also important that you have the right education that will help you through your journey. So what educational choices did these special people make?
A new study conducted by UK-based Approved Index, a business-to-business platform, revealed that Engineering is the most common academic degree among the top 100 billionaires in the world. It was found that more than 22 per cent had pursued this course while at university, including Larry Page,co-founder of Google. The study compiled statistics from world's 100 richest people and used the Forbes 2015 list. The findings were rather surprising as around 9 per cent studied an arts degree, whereas Law, Mathematics and Science programmes had merely 2 per cent takers each (a total of 6 billionaires). On the other hand, 12 billionaires had studied a business degree and 8 per cent had pursued a degree in economics and 3 per cent studied finance at university level.
The study also found that that around 40 per cent of billionaires are from North America, while 29 per cent are from Europe and 22 per cent from Asia. It revealed that Australia and Africa have been able to create only 1 billionaire each till now.
Can You Become A Billionaire?
Do you think you have what it takes to become a billionaire? Or are you having doubts after taking a look at the data? Well then let me tell you that you have as much chance of becoming the next billionaire like any other person around the world. The Billionaire Census found that most of the billionaires in the world are self-made and merely one-in-five are heirs of rich parents. So it's time for you to enroll for the right degree and begin your journey.
But how do you know which programme will be the right one for you? That's actually simple! If you wish to be an entrepreneur in Nigeria then a business degree would be most beneficial for you.
