• Baylor entrepreneurship program among nation’s top 5 for 8th straight year

    Best colleges for entrepreneurs

    In 2007, Baylor’s entrepreneurship program was ranked 23rd in the nation by Entrepreneur magazine and The Princeton Review. A year later, the program moved up to No. 12 nationally. And in 2009, it cracked the top 5 for the first time.

    It’s never left.

    For the eighth straight year, Baylor entrepreneurship is ranked among The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur‘s top-five undergraduate entrepreneurship programs; this year, BU sits at No. 5.

    What makes Baylor’s program so special? At its core, it comes down to innovation — which, of course, makes sense when you’re talking about entrepreneurship. Programs such as Accelerated Ventures (a two-semester experience that enables students to create real companies with real products and services while raising real money), the Institute for Family Business (which studies and promotes family-owned companies) and i5 (an interdisciplinary program that introduces students to the burgeoning market in China) set Baylor apart.

    Over the last five years, BU entrepreneurship graduates have started almost 300 companies and collectively raised some $30 million in funding. Every undergraduate professor in the program has started, bought and/or run his or her own business, and more than 150 other individuals work with students through a mentoring program.
