Princeton Review/Entrepreneur Magazine Rank Babson MBA #1 for Entrepreneurship
The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine have announced the results of their survey rankings of the top undergraduate and graduate programs for entrepreneurship in the nation, and Babson continues to be recognized as a leader in the field. Our MBA program is ranked #1 -- the fourth year in a row we have been in the top position.
This year our undergraduate program was ranked #2 in this survey, up from #3 last year and behind the University of Houston. For perspective on the undergraduate ranking, keep in mind that there often is fluctuation year-to-year. Over the past five years, we have been at #1, #2 or #3 for entrepreneurship in this survey. At the same time, when this ranking is considered in the context of all of the major survey rankings, our leadership in the field is consistent and widely-shared.
The magazine profiles Professor and Entrepreneurship Chair Candy Brush in the story: Babson's Candida Brush: Professor and Team Leader. Also highlighted are her former students Jill Cartwright (Go GaGa), Candice Cabe (Day2Night) and Caitlin Fenn (MySuperMe),
“Congratulations to faculty in all our academic disciplines for bringing their exceptional teaching and to our staff who do a great job working with our students. We remain firmly committed to this institution’s leadership in entrepreneurial education as measured by our own internal standards, as well as survey results -- and we will continue to prepare Babson’s undergraduate and MBA students to create economic and social value everywhere,” said President Len Schlesinger.
In releasing the rankings, Princeton Review’s Senior Vice President Robert Franek said, “(Undergraduate) schools like Babson, that require students to have at least 50 percent of their course work focused on the liberal arts, are breaking the mold when it comes to preparing future entrepreneurs.”
“His comment underscores the importance of all Babson faculty in teaching the mindset and skills that are critical to educate entrepreneurial leaders of all kinds,” said President Schlesinger.
