For the third straight year, Baylor’s undergraduate entrepreneurship program has been ranked among the five best in the country by The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur Magazine. This year, BU came in at No. 3 in the nation, based its outstanding teaching, faculty expertise and entrepreneurial opportunities outside the classroom.
If you feel like you’ve read this before, it’s because you have. For as long as we’ve been doing this blog, the BU program has been recognized by these two entities. This is the fifth year in a row we’ve covered the rankings, as Baylor’s program has risen from No. 23 in 2007 to No. 3 this year.
The entrepreneurship program in Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business will be further bolstered in future years thanks to an anonymous $2 million gift announced this summer that will endow the Baylor Entrepreneurship Innovation Challenge, a business plan competition for students from all over the nation. The inaugural competition will be held next spring, providing a balance for Baylor’s longstanding National MBA Case Competition in Ethical Leadership that is held each fall.
Sic ’em, Baylor entrepreneurship students and faculty!
