SLU Receives Top 25 Ranking From Princeton Review and Entrepreneur Magazine for Entrepreneurship Graduate Programs


The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine have ranked Saint Louis University’s graduate business entrepreneurship programs 18th in the country, up from 23 last year.

Out of more than 300 schools offering entrepreneurship studies that The Princeton Review surveyed, 35 institutions’ undergraduate and/or graduate programs made the roster of top schools for 2017.

​”Saint Louis University’s entrepreneurship program incorporates a unique co-teaching approach, pairing our outstanding faculty with successful local entrepreneurs to connect theory and practice,” said Mark Higgins, Ph.D., dean of the Cook School. “This sort of thinking rolls over to the Coleman Fellows Program, helping faculty outside the business school infuse entrepreneurship into their classes to create entrepreneurs across our campus. ​”​

The Princeton Review posted the lists at www.princetonreview.com/entrepreneur, as well as the methodology for the survey, criteria for the rankings, and detailed profiles of the schools.

The Princeton Review conducted a 60-question survey from May through August 2016. The survey asked schools to report on levels of their commitment to entrepreneurship studies inside and outside the classroom. More than 40 data points were analyzed for the tally to determine the rankings. Topics included: the percentage of faculty, students, alumni actively and successfully involved in entrepreneurial endeavors, the number and reach of mentorship programs, scholarships and grants for entrepreneurial studies, and the level of support for school-sponsored business plan competitions.
