How do you measure the quality of a business school’s entrepreneurial offerings?
Let me count the ways.
As an applicant or a student, you might be most interested in the schools that provide the most seed capital or have the most entrepreneurs in residence to help mentor you and your idea to fruition. Or you might favor a school that offers the most courses in entrepreneurship or one where a very high percentage of the MBA students are in the entrepreneurship club, one indication of the importance a school’s culture places on new venture creation.
For our debut ranking of the MBA programs that are best in entrpreneurship with Inc. magazine, we’re showing you the results of every metric in our study. That allows you the option to pick and choose the elements that are most important to you.
The heaviest weighted category in the rankings methodology was the percentage of full-time MBA elective courses focused entirely on entrepreneurship and innovation during the 2018-2019 academic year (20%). At Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and CEIBS, nearly half of all electives offered to full-time MBAs were focused on entrepreneurship and innovation.
