U of U Business School Ranked in Top 25 for Entrepreneurship

Press Release

November 7, 2013

Salt Lake City — The David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah has been ranked among the top 25 schools for entrepreneurship for the third-straight year in the annual survey by the Princeton Review. The graduate program at the David Eccles School of Business ranked 23rd among more than 2,000 institutions across the country.

“We have consistently ranked high for entrepreneurship, and we continue to build strengths in this area,” said Taylor Randall, dean of the David Eccles School of Business.

The rankings are based on surveys that were sent to administrators from April to June 2013. The Princeton Review reports the top 50 schools for entrepreneurship, 25 undergraduate and 25 graduate. The Princeton Review has reported these lists annually since 2006. Three years ago, the David Eccles School of Business debuted on this list. Among the areas of growth at the David Eccles School of Business is a new interdisciplinary entrepreneurship certificate offered to students from any major.

The Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute has also seen continual growth since its founding in 2000. The institute provides a range of programs to engage students interested in entrepreneurship and give them a hands-on learning experience. Programs include a student business discover center, business plan competitions, a medical device competition, youth innovation and a program that allows graduate students to write business plans for faculty inventors. Thousands of students participate in these programs each year.
