U.S. News & World Report has ranked Babson College the No. 1 undergraduate school for entrepre­neurship for the 23rd consecutive time.

“The world and workplace are rapidly evolving, and higher education, along with nearly every other sector, is being disrupted. As the best school for entrepreneurship, Babson is uniquely positioned—even obligated—to shift the paradigm and lead the change that today’s environment demands. So, we're doubling up on entrepreneurship, extending our network, and curating experiences that set us apart and create lifelong value for our students, alumni, and community,” President Stephen Spinelli Jr. MBA’92, PhD says.

“From Babson’s pioneering work in teaching and research on entrepreneurship, to more than two decades later as the recognized world leader in entrepreneurship education, I am very proud of U.S. News & World Report’s acknowledgement of the impact that our students, alumni, and faculty have on campus and around the world,” said Babson College Undergraduate School Dean Ian Lapp.

Babson is world-renowned for its unique methodology and curriculum, where every student starts and runs their own business. The approach produces results: 99 percent of students are employed within six months of graduation and PayScale recently recognized Babson as the top business school in the country for salary potential.
