A Top Stop for Entrepreneurs

The University of Oregon Lundquist College of Business’s graduate entrepreneurship specialization is rising up in a respected ranking.

The Princeton Review, in partnership with Entrepreneur magazine, placed the college in the top 35 overall and 12th in the West, which it classifies as anywhere west of the Mississippi River.

The schools on the list are at the forefront of development ready to “help students appropriately speed up and, when necessary, scale-up their ideas, from unicorns to innovative business models,” according to Entrepreneur.

The ranking also weights opportunities for students to “enrich themselves and their communities, adding economic and social value through innovation, team building, and leadership.”

It also considers our graduates’ success in the business world as well as the availability of mentors for our students.

The Lundquist College was one of only 50 prestigious schools ranked from an original survey of more than 250 institutions in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe.

Of those, the Lundquist College jumped an impressive five spots to #12 for schools west of the Mississippi River, beating out larger programs in Texas and California.

“Entrepreneurship students come to the University of Oregon ready to disrupt industries with their ideas. Our signature blend of fundamentals, coupled with industry leading instructors and world-class mentors, attracts the students who will soon lead the next generation of innovators,” said Nathan Lillegard, director of the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship.
