As of August 2023, he is the richest person in Asia and the thirteenth richest person wordwide, with an estimated net worth of $91.2 billion. Known for being a plutocrat at times, he has gained and lost reputation due to allegations of cronyism, market manipulation, political corruption, and exploitation. In the "Titans" section of Time magazine, he was selected as one of the 100 most influential people of 2019.

Early Life

Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani was born on April 19, 1957, in the Gujarati Hindu household of Dhirubhai and Kokilaben Ambani in the British Crown province of Aden (modern-day Yemen). He has two sisters, Dipti Dattaraj Salgaonkar and Nina Bhadrashyam Kothari, and a younger brother, Anil Ambani.

Ambani's father moved back to India in 1958 to establish a trade company specializing in textiles and spices, thus the family did not spend much time in Yemen. The latter was once known as "Vimal" before being renamed "Only Vimal." Up until the 1970s, his family resided in a small two-bedroom flat in Bhuleshwar, Mumbai. After moving to India, the family's financial situation somewhat improved, but Ambani continued to live in a communal community, take public transit, and never get an allowance.


Ambani, his brother, and Anand Jain—a future close friend—all attended the Hill Grange High School on Peddar Road in Mumbai. Following his high school education, he attended St. Xavier's College in Mumbai. After that, he graduated from the Institute of Chemical Technology with a BE in chemical engineering.

Later, Ambani enrolled at Stanford University to get an MBA, but he dropped out in 1980 to assist his father in building Reliance, which at the time was still a tiny but rapidly expanding business. His father brought his son back to India from Stanford to take charge of a yarn production project at his firm because he believed that real-life skills were developed by experiences rather than by sitting in a classroom.

Ambani is credited as being inspired by Man Mohan Sharma and William F. Sharpe, his instructors, who were "the kind of professors who made you think out of the box."


He began assisting his father Dhirubhai Ambani in the management of the family company, Reliance Industries Limited, in 1981. It had already grown to deal in petrochemicals and refining by this point. Products and services from the retail and telecommunications sectors were also offered by the company. The biggest retailer in India is Reliance Retail Ltd., another affiliate. Since its official launch on September 5, 2016, Reliance's Jio has maintained a top-five position in the nation's communications services [further explanation needed].

Ambani has been India's richest person on Forbes magazine's list for the previous 10 years, and as of 2016, he was rated as the 36th richest person in the world. Among the world's most powerful persons, according to Forbes, he is the sole businessman from India. According to Forbes, Mukesh Ambani was the sixth wealthiest person in the world as of October 2020.With a net worth of $44.3 billion, he eclipsed Alibaba Group executive chairman Jack Ma to become the richest person in Asia in July 2018. In addition, he is the richest individual outside of North America and Europe in the entire globe.
