Continuing the Streak

For the ninth straight year, the University's entrepreneurship program earned a top-20 national ranking from The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine.

The program ranks 13th in the 2015 list of best undergraduate entrepreneurial programs released Tuesday, Sept. 16, by Entrepreneur magazine and The Princeton Review. The University's program moved up five places from last year and is the top-ranked undergraduate program among Catholic universities nationwide.

"I think our ranking improved because we are increasingly taking entrepreneurship beyond the business school into other academic units," said Jay Janney, chair of the management and marketing department. "For example, our collaboration with the School of Engineering is a great experience for both engineering and entrepreneurship students because they learn how to work together to solve both technical and market challenges that a start-up firm faces."

Since the University first offered entrepreneurship classes in 1999, the program has seen steady growth and is one of the fastest-growing majors in the School of Business Administration.

The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur surveyed nearly 2,000 schools. Since 1996, they have picked the nation's top 25 undergraduate and top 25 graduate programs for excellence in entrepreneurship.

The rankings can be seen at http://www.princetonreview.com/entrepreneur and will be published in the October issue of Entrepreneur.
