Warren Buffet

By Rafaey Ahmad

Early Life

Warren Buffett never had the intention of going to college. By age 13, he was managing his own business as a paperboy. He ended up making over $5,000 (equivalent to $42,610 in the year 2000) delivering newspapers. However, his father urged him to attend the University of Pennsylvania for business.

Buffett enrolled himself in Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania at age 16 to study business. After two years of complaining that he knew more than his professors, he moved on to the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and finished his degree. He graduated from the University of Nebraska at age 19 with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration.
