    Mark Zuckerberg, Harvard College

    Mark Zukerberg


    Students study insanely hard to get into Harvard and then some more to pass out of it. But Mark wasn't one of them. While students toiled away in classes, burying their noses into books, Mark was in his dorm room, coming up with the algorithm of Facebook. Soon the fame for the intra-college social website spilled over to the other side of the Atlantic, which made Mark pack his bags from Harvard and head to California. Now, Mark is not only the youngest billionaire in the world, with a net worth of $17.5 billion but with the Facebook IPO coming through, he could become the richest man in the world. He was also named TIME magazine's Person of the year in 2011.

    Steve Jobs, Reed College



    The New Age Genius, as hailed by many, Steve Jobs dropped out of Reed College after just six months, as the expensive college was putting a great financial strain on his working class adoptive parents. He eventually founded Apple, NEXT Computer and Pixar Animations that have given us products like the iPod, iPhone, iPad and even Buzz Lightyear. Renowned for his out of the box thinking in churning out elegant designs and technologically outstanding products, his company remains at the top of the game, even after his sad demise. His time after Reed College was one of struggle, but during the commencement speech he gave at Stanford University, Jobs revealed that although he realized he wasn't learning much at Reeds, he experienced his "Connect-the Dots" moment, when the calligraphy class he undertook formed the basis for the typography used in the first Macintosh computer.
