If you have hopes of landing a career that will make you a millionaire one day, a new report shows which universities you may want to consider when filling out applications.

According to a new wealth report by London-based consultancy Henley & Partners, just eight U.S. universities educated 35% off the country's "centi-millionaires" — someone whose wealth is estimated at $100 million or more. The report found that as of December, the U.S. had 9,630 centi-millionaires.

While 65% come from other universities, more than a third of these wealthy individuals attended just eight universities. It's a significant number, considering the U.S. has close to 4,000 colleges or universities.
