Institute for Entrepreneurship Again Named Top Ten Public Program by the Princeton Review

November 2017

For the tenth year in a row, The Institute for Entrepreneurship at the Farmer School of Business has been ranked by The Princeton Review & Entrepreneur magazine as one of the Top 10 Public Undergraduate Schools for Entrepreneurship Programs for 2018. The list was announced Nov. 14.

As explained by Entrepreneur Magazine, “Each year, Entrepreneur partners with The Princeton Review to rank the top 25 undergraduate and top 25 graduate programs for entrepreneurs. The annual survey looks at more than 300 colleges and universities and weighs each institution’s commitment to surrounding its students with world-class mentors, professors, and alumni, as well as an environment for budding entrepreneurs to thrive.”

The Institute for Entrepreneurship is one of the fastest growing programs at the Farmer School and has nearly tripled in size over the last six years. More than half of the students studying entrepreneurship are from non-business divisions at Miami University, and more than 70 different major are represented within their ranks.

Brett Smith, director, Institute for Entrepreneurship, and founding director, Center for Social Entrepreneurship, commented, "While we are pleased to be recognized for our work, we are most pleased with the successes of our graduates, like Michael Markesbery (’15 entrepreneurship minor) just named to Forbes 30 Under 30 list, and countless others who are changing the world. We will continue to grow and evolve our focal areas of corporate, social and start-up entrepreneurship along with creativity and innovation while seeking even more opportunities for our students to practice what we teach.”
