Top 5 Billionaire College Dropouts
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.
