Whitman's Entrepreneurship Program Ranked Among Best in the Nation by The Princeton Review and Featured in Entrepreneur Magazine


The Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University's Department of Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises is one of the best in the nation according to The Princeton Review. Earlier today, the education services company named the school #4 on its list of "Top 25 Undergraduate Schools for Entrepreneurship Programs for 2014." Whitman was ranked #11 on the list last year.

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. The Princeton Review has reported these lists annually since 2006 in partnership with Entrepreneur Media Inc., publisher of Entrepreneur magazine.

“We are extremely proud of the thought leadership both the Whitman School and Syracuse University as a whole provides in Entrepreneurship,” says Whitman Dean Ken Kavajecz. “The latest ranking by Princeton Review demonstrates our national reach and impact.”

"The entrepreneurial opportunities at Syracuse University are remarkable," says Tom Lumpkin, the Chris J. Witting Chair  in Entrepreneurship at the Whitman School. "The Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises department and the Whitman School are leading the way in creating new opportunities and linking students, faculty, alumni and the university community to those opportunities. We are grateful to the Princeton Review for recognizing our entrepreneurial leadership."

The Princeton Review chooses the schools based on a wide range of institutional data it evaluates for this project. Schools are asked about the levels of their commitment to entrepreneurship inside and outside the classroom, the percentage of their faculty, students, and alumni actively and successfully involved in entrepreneurial endeavors, the number of their mentorship programs, and their funding for scholarships and grants for entrepreneurial studies and projects.

The top entrepreneurship program lists are posted on The Princeton Review's website at www.princetonreview.com/entrepreneur. There users can also access information about the Company's survey methodology and criteria for the rankings and read its profiles of the schools. Entrepreneur has also posted a feature on the ranking lists on its website at www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges. The magazine's feature article will appear in its October issue, available on newsstands September 24.
