Growth of entrepreneurship education in US

16 10 2007

Entrepreneur magazine and The Princeton Review have released Top Fifty Entrepreneurial Colleges, the fifth  annual ranking of entrepreneurship programs in the US which lists both graduate and undergraduate programs.  There was an increase of almost 30% in participating universities, which underscores the growing number of entrepreneurial courses nationwide.  900 institutions were surveyed and evaluated on key criteria in the areas of academics and requirements, students and faculty, and outside-the-classroom support and experiences. The survey questions are refined and the results validated with the help of an advisory board comprised of professionals in the area of entrepreneurship education.

Two months ago, Fortune Small Business (FSB) compiled a selection of the best colleges for entrepreneurs, although FSB stress that their guide, America’s Best Colleges for Entrepreneurs, does not provide a ranking or league tables.  This guide also noted that the study of entrepreneurship is on the rise, and includes anecdotes from students on how the classes they took affected their businesses.
