The University of Oregon Lundquist College of Business has earned a place on the The Princeton Review’s Top 50 Entrepreneurship: Grad list.
We are #33 overall for graduate entrepreneurship and #17 among public business schools.
Just last month, the Oregon MBA also earned recognition as a top 50 pick from Poets&Quants in partnership with Inc. Magazine.
“Entrepreneurship fuels innovation and has the power to advance entire states and regions,” said Sarah E. Nutter, Edward Maletis Dean of the Lundquist College. “Our entrepreneurship offerings are a true differentiator among our peers and places us firmly on the path of being the premier business school destination on the West Coast.”
More than 300 schools were surveyed, and The Princeton Review based its list on “institutional survey data, including academic offerings, experiential learning opportunities, and career outcomes, among other factors.”
The ranking also rewards a team-driven approach and cross-campus collaboration and gives weight to recent alumni who developed or launched businesses while in school—and whether those businesses were successful.
Mentorship, scholarships offered, and whether or not the institution hosts business competitions were also factored into the ranking. The Lundquist College offers or cosponsors a variety of business competitions onsite and across campus, including its signature business plan competition, the New Venture Championship.
