Norman -- The Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Oklahoma’s Michael F. Price College of Business is one of the best in the nation according to The Princeton Review. On September 16, Princeton Review and Entrepreneur Magazine named the undergraduate program in the top 5 (#5) and the graduate program in the top 20 (#18) on its list of "Top 25 Graduate and Undergraduate Entrepreneurship Programs for 2015." This is the fourth consecutive year the Price College Center for Entrepreneurship has been ranked as a top 10 program by the Princeton Review.
“The Center for Entrepreneurship is a leading entrepreneurship program that empowers students to learn by doing,” said Jim Wheeler, Stanley White executive director and co-founder of the Center for Entrepreneurship. “We focus on creating an entrepreneurial ecosystem that enables students to learn through experience and launch successful business ventures. We are extremely proud of the multidisciplinary impact of our program and look forward to continued success as we expand and launch new innovative programs.”
Based on surveys sent to school administrators at more than 2,000 institutions from April to June in 2014, the lists recognize 50 programs in all –- 25 undergraduate and 25 graduate – for their excellence in entrepreneurship education. The Princeton Review has reported these lists annually since 2006 in partnership with Entrepreneur Media Inc., publisher of Entrepreneur magazine.
The Princeton Review chooses the schools based on a wide range of institutional data it evaluates for this project. Schools are asked about the levels of their commitment to entrepreneurship inside and outside the classroom, the percentage of their faculty, students, and alumni actively and successfully involved in entrepreneurial endeavors, the number of their mentorship programs, and their funding for scholarships and grants for entrepreneurial studies and projects.
The top entrepreneurship program lists are posted on The Princeton Review's website.
“Formal instruction and mentorship from great minds in business can help leaders prepare for the challenges that come with entrepreneurship,” said Amy Cosper, VP and editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. “The schools in our annual list have ranked high for creating some of the best environments to nurture the pursuit of building a business from the ground up.”
