The Institute for Entrepreneurship in the Farmer School of Business at Miami University was awarded the "Excellence in Specialty Entrepreneurship Education" award by the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurial Centers during an October conference.
The Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers brings together over 200 university-based entrepreneurship centers from around the world to collaborate, communicate and jointly advance excellence in entrepreneurship. The “Excellence in Specialty Entrepreneurship Education” award is based on mission and strategy of the program, faculty profiles and accomplishments.
“What makes this award especially meaningful is that we were recognized by our peer institutions. That’s a true testament to the level of teaching, research and impact happening every day," said Roger Jenkins, dean of the Farmer School of Business.
The institute includes the Thomas C. Page Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, which focuses on undergraduate teaching and research, and the Center for Social Entrepreneurship, which has been internationally recognized for its award-winning program that seeks to apply innovative solutions to persistent social problems.
The Institute for Entrepreneurship has won several national and international awards and was recently recognized by the Ohio Board of Regents as an Ohio Center of Excellence.
