Entrepreneur Magazine and The Princeton Review announced their 2011 top 50 (top 25 undergraduate and top 25 graduate programs) schools for entrepreneurship. While my alma mater didn’t make the undergrad list, it did make the graduate list at number 16; congrats UW! Topping the list in the undergraduate category is the University of Houston, for the second year in a row. Making the top of the list for the third year is Babson College.
The criteria in which over 2,000 schools were judged against includes: “teaching strong entrepreneurship fundamentals in the classroom, staffing departments with instructors who are successful entrepreneurs”, “excellence in mentorship, and providing experiential or entrepreneurial opportunities outside of the classroom.”
“This ranking provides a unique look at top schools that offer the type of training, encouragement and direction that nurtures entrepreneurial skills. It’s an excellent resource for those interested in academics as a pathway to their goals, and it can help tremendously in the discovery process to finding the right program,” explains Amy Cosper, vice president and ediotr in chief at Entrepreneur.
