Baruch College Gets High Rankings in The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur Magazine's "Top 25 Schools for Entrepreneurship Studies" for 2018
Zicklin School of Business in the Top 10 Undergraduate and Graduate Programs
Nationwide for Third Consecutive Year
New York, NY – November 14, 2017 – Baruch College’s undergraduate and graduate programs at the College’s Zicklin School of Business were ranked in the top 10 by The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine’s survey of the “Top Schools for Entrepreneurship Studies for 2018.”
Baruch College placed #5 in “Top 25 Undergraduate Schools” – the highest ranking to date in this category – and ranked #10 among the “Top 25 Graduate Schools.”
These high rankings mark the third consecutive year that Baruch College has placed in the top 10, for both undergraduate and graduate programs, and the 10th consecutive year Baruch College has been included in one or both of the undergraduate and graduate lists since the annual ranking began in 2006.
The rankings are based on surveys by The Princeton Review, in partnership with Entrepreneur magazine, of more than 300 colleges and business schools across the country offering entrepreneurship programs.
“We’re very proud to once again be nationally recognized for our entrepreneurship programs,” said H. Fenwick Huss, PhD, Willem Kooyker Dean of the Zicklin School of Business. “Zicklin embodies the entrepreneurial spirit with real-world experiential learning taught by experienced faculty and industry experts.”
“These top rankings demonstrate the Field’s Center’s unwavering commitment to a robust entrepreneurship education that fully equips our students with the latest tools, experiences and support essential for success in today’s economy,” said Scott Newbert, PhD, academic director of the Lawrence N. Field Programs in Entrepreneurship.
For Dr. Newbert, earning such high rankings by Princeton Review over three consecutive years is significant.
A Specialty in Entrepreneurship
At Baruch College, The Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship plays a crucial role in establishing the Zicklin School of Business as a leading business school with a specialty in entrepreneurship. Zicklin’s faculty and students, Baruch’s Small Business Development Center advisors, as well as alumni, entrepreneurs, and consultants come together at the Field Center to support the entrepreneurial endeavors of start-ups, established businesses, and the College’s constituents.
Each year, the Field Center holds entrepreneurship-focused events, MakerHub workshops, co-working opportunities to exchange ideas in a supportive environment, and partnerships with such high-profile companies as AT&T and IBM, to host student entrepreneurship competitions.
A model of entrepreneurship education, the Field Center is built around the collaboration of an institution of higher education, government, and the private sector.
The company tallied its lists of top 25 undergraduate and top 25 graduate schools based on a survey it conducted in June through August 2017 of more than 300 schools nationwide offering programs in entrepreneurship studies.
