What It Takes To Get Into Kellogg

This B-School Graduated The Most Company Founders

Which b-school has the most company founders? Not Harvard, Stanford, or Wharton.

Think Howard University.

A recent MBA survey by Bloomberg Businessweek found that Howard University School of Business graduated the highest percentage of company founders from 2010 to 2012: 51% to be exact.

That’s the highest share of any of the 126 schools surveyed in the Businessweek Best B-School ranking.


Bloomberg surveyed 49 grads of Howard’s b-school that graduated between 2010 and 2012.

The publication notes that Howard’s performance may be a “statistical fluke,” considering Bloomberg sampled a smaller number of grads from only three graduating years.

“It’s possible that the entire student body wasn’t as entrepreneurial as those surveyed, or that the 2010-12 period at Howard was uncharacteristic,” Peter Coy, an economics editor for Bloomberg Businessweek, writes. “Howard offers a course on entrepreneurship but doesn’t make it a core part of the curriculum, as some MBA programs do.”


While entrepreneurship isn’t a core part of Howard’s curriculum, students say that it is ingrained in the culture and students of the university.

“What Howard bred in me is how you take problems and make solutions,” Jomari Peterson, who got his MBA from Howard University in the spring of 2010, tells Bloomberg Businessweek. “What you recognize, the systems might not be designed for you. You have to be able to create a solution despite not being given the resources everybody else has.”
