The University of Maryland has once again made The Princeton Review's list of the country's top entrepreneurship programs. In the 2014 list of the "Top 50 Schools For Entrepreneurship Programs," published in Entrepreneur magazine, UMD ranks No. 15 for its undergraduate program. The university also ranks No. 16 for its graduate program, up eight spots from the 2013 rankings.
"The University of Maryland has been a pioneer in entrepreneurship for over two decades with nationally recognized entrepreneurship programs in both the business school and the engineering school. But our rise in these rankings over the last few years also reflects our growing campus-wide emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship in all twelve schools," says Dean Chang, UMD's associate vice president for innovation and entrepreneurship. "Over the past year, we have ramped up our entrepreneurship course offerings, mentoring opportunities and competitions all across campus. This work is still only a starting point for where we plan to take entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland in the future."
Based on surveys sent to school administrators at more than 2,000 institutions from April to June in 2013, the lists recognize 50 programs in all—25 undergraduate and 25 graduate—for their excellence in entrepreneurship education.
