The University of Maryland, College Park, is one of the top 25 schools in the U.S. for entrepreneurship: number 14 on the list with respect to its undergraduate programs, and number 24 on the list regarding its graduate courses, reports the Baltimore Business Journal.
From the report:
Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine compiled the rankings by reviewing more than 2,000 schools’ levels of commitment to entrepreneurship; the percentage of their faculty, students, and alumni actively and successfully involved in entrepreneurial endeavors; and the number and reach of their mentorship programs. Funding for scholarships and grants for entrepreneurial studies and projects, and their support for school-sponsored business plan competitions were also considered. [more]
According to a press release from the Dingman Center, “The Princeton Review rankings come on the heels of a student ranking on the college guide site Unigo.com that named the university number 4 in the country for entrepreneurship.”
The Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland, which recently promoted Elana Fine to managing director, sponsors Pitch Dingman, the UMD Entrepreneurship Invitational and the China Business Plan Competition. It also doles out funding to promising entrepreneurs through the Dingman Center Angels.
