"Inherent in this ranking study is that entrepreneurship can indeed be taught in a classroom"
OAKLAND, CA, October 27, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Poets&Quants, the definitive online publication for business education news, has unveiled its 2nd annual ranking of the Best MBA Programs for Entrepreneurship in partnership with Inc. Magazine. The data reveal that, for the second year in a row, the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis is the #1 business school for entrepreneurship.
Poets&Quants' ranking captures a wide range of criteria about U.S. and global business schools, including a school's accelerator space, venture funds available, core classes dedicated to entrepreneurship, and much more.
"Inherent in this ranking study is that entrepreneurship can indeed be taught in a classroom," says Nathan Allen, staff writer at Poets&Quants and lead editor of the entrepreneurship ranking. "While so many successful founders never stepped foot on a college campus, business schools are turning out thousands of graduate entrepreneurs who are the beneficiaries of millions of dollars in funding and who have created some of the most successful startups of the past ten years."
A unique element of Poets&Quants' ranking is complete transparency on the ranking methodology and weighting system, allowing for students to evaluate schools for the best fit. The full methodology can be viewed here and the full data set here.
