About The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur Rankings

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 list of top entrepreneurship programs is available at www.princetonreview.com/entrepreneur. There, users can also access information about the Company’s survey methodology and criteria for the rankings and read its profiles of the schools.

Entrepreneur has also posted a feature on this ranking at www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges. The magazine’s feature article will appear in its October issue, available on newsstands September 23.

The Princeton Review has reported these lists annually since 2006 in partnership with Entrepreneur Media Inc., publisher of Entrepreneur magazine.
