All Of The Data Behind P&Q’s 2024 Top MBA Programs For Entrepreneurship

PERCENT OF STUDENTS IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP CLUB (10%)

Another indicator of a healthy entrepreneurial environment is the number of students in the school’s main entrepreneurship club. That’s why we give the metric a 10% weight in the methodology.

Some 65% of MBAs at Michigan Ross were members of the main entrepreneurship club during the academic year, making it a clear winner.

RATIO OF INCUBATOR AND ACCELERATOR SPACE TO MBAS (10%)

Having the space to work and launch a company is important. We asked schools to report the total square footage of on-campus incubator and accelerator space that was available to MBA students during the 2022-2023 academic year. We then calculated a ratio based on the total number of MBAs enrolled during the same academic year. The number below is the square footage of incubator or accelerator space available to each MBA per school.
