Last summer, The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine surveyed colleges and universities trying to determine which best serve future entrepreneurs, and two Ohio universities made the list of top 50 undergraduate programs for entrepreneurs.
No. 11 Miami University John W. Altman Institute for Entrepreneurship has 34 related courses, 2,806 students, 105 startups in the past five years and $45 million in funding. No. 34 University of Dayton L. William Crotty Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership has 35 courses, 1,580 enrolled students and 74 startups.
The key metrics included a commitment to entrepreneurship courses, cross-discipline opportunities, scholarships, outside mentors and prize money.
