Oklahoma State University’s School of Entrepreneurship was recognized as one of the top schools in the nation in the 2023 rankings published by The Princeton Review and featured in the December issue of Entrepreneur magazine.
The OSU School of Entrepreneurship is ranked 31st on the list of Top 50 Graduate Schools and is No. 49 in the rankings of the Top 50 Undergraduate Schools. In the Southwest region rankings, the graduate program is No. 6 and the undergraduate program is No. 7.
“I’m very pleased by our top-50 rankings,” said Bruce Barringer, head of the OSU School of Entrepreneurship. “It’s a tribute to everyone involved with our program, from our faculty to our alumni and our students. I’m particularly pleased for our students. It’s because of their hard work and entrepreneurial spirit that we were able to achieve this recognition.”
The Spears School’s entrepreneurship program started in 2008 and quickly made a name for itself across the nation. The OSU School of Entrepreneurship debuted in the The Princeton Review/Entrepreneur rankings in 2012, and has continued to be honored for its outstanding educational opportunities.
The rankings are drawn from a 60- question survey issued to all the schools considered, with questions focused on each school’s level of commitment to entrepreneurship studies, inside and outside the classroom. More than 40 data points were analyzed for the tally in determining the rankings.
“Since the mid-2000s when we debuted these ranking lists, student interest in entrepreneurship studies has grown dramatically, as has the commitment to this field in higher education and the extraordinary support of the business community for these programs,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor in chief. “We strongly recommend these schools on our entrepreneurship studies lists for 2023. Their faculties are outstanding. Their programs have robust mentoring components, and their students receive networking support that will serve them for years to come.”
This is the 17th year that Entrepreneur magazine has partnered with The Princeton Review to publish this list of top entrepreneurship programs. The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur published the project’s rankings list on their respective websites.
