Loyola Marymount University’s undergraduate entrepreneurship program ranks among the top 25 in the nation, The Princeton Review announced this week.
LMU is the only California university on the 2017 list of the best schools for students aspiring to launch their own businesses. The Princeton Review surveyed more than 300 colleges and universities to compile the latest rankings, taking into account such factors as the number of entrepreneurship clubs and organizations available to students, business plan competitions and faculty members’ experience in the startup world.
Located in the heart of one of the most vibrant entrepreneurship communities in the world – Silicon Beach – LMU’s Fred Kiesner Center for Entrepreneurship is consistently top ranked. The Princeton Review included LMU on its 2016 list of the top 25 undergraduate entrepreneurship programs, and U.S. News & World Report ranked LMU 7th nationally among undergraduate entrepreneurship programs in 2016 and 10th nationally for graduate programs in 2017.
“I am so proud that The Princeton Review has again acknowledged the hard work of our entrepreneurship students, faculty and staff members, and advisers,” said David Choi, Ph.D., director of the Fred Kiesner Center for Entrepreneurship. “Together, we’ve created a program that encourages students to explore their limitless entrepreneurial capacities and enables them to succeed no matter what they end up doing – whether they work in large organizations or in their own startups.”
