As we continuously state, no ranking is perfect. There are a ton of higher education-focused rankings on the market. Some are more legit and helpful than others. We put in year-round thought, work, and conversations to make our rankings and legit and beneficial to our readers as possible.
We also believe the true value in the ranking is the data we pull from schools that are often unavailable anywhere else. So to help our readers form their own opinions on the 50 schools we ranked for this year’s Poets&Quants and Inc magazine Best MBA Programs for Entrepreneurship, we’ve compiled all of the data we used to create the ranking. We encourage you to click through the pages of this article and look to see how each school performed in the 10 data categories we used to order this year’s ranking.
One of the heaviest weighted categories in this year’s ranking (20%) is the average percentage of full-time MBA students launching startups within three months of graduation for the graduating classes of 2017, 2018, and 2019.
