For the fourth straight year, Brigham Young University has been ranked as one of the top 25 schools in the country for entrepreneurs.
In its August issue, Success magazine rates BYU's Marriott School of Management as the 18th best business school for aspiring entrepreneurs. BYU's Center for Entrepreneurship came out ahead of entrepreneurship programs at Columbia University and Harvard University, according to the seven scholars who ranked the schools."There are so many people from the community - former students, friends of the university, members of the LDS Church - who make the program work," said Donald H. Livingstone, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship. "Our students don't have to look for mentors, because all of these wonderful, experienced, successful entrepreneurs are so actively involved in the center."
In addition to the center's mentoring program, Success cited the Marriott School for its emphasis on helping students learn all aspects of starting and growing a business. The $7,209 annual tuition for a Marriott School graduate student also makes BYU the biggest bargain on the magazine's list of the top 25 entrepreneurial schools.
