OU entrepreneurship program ranks in top two

NORMAN — The Price College of Business entrepreneurship program at the University of Oklahoma ranked in the top two in the nation among public universities, according to ratings released this week by The Princeton Review, an education services company.

“OU is one of only three public universities in the United States to achieve high marks from Businessweek, U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review,” said Daniel Pullin, interim dean of Price College. “Our talented entrepreneurship faculty is providing our students the best possible academic programs and opportunities to help them succeed.”

In The Princeton Review’s rankings, Price College’s undergraduate program moved from No. 10 to No. 6 in just one year, a ranking that consists of both private and public universities throughout the United States. Among public universities, Price College’s entrepreneurship program went from No. 5 to No. 2 in the same time period.

The college’s graduate program also achieved a high ranking of No. 15 overall and No. 7 among public universities.

Based on surveys sent to school administrators at more than 2,000 institutions from April to June, the lists recognize 50 programs in all — 25 undergraduate and 25 graduate — for their excellence in entrepreneurship education. The Princeton Review has reported these lists annually since 2006 in partnership with Entrepreneur Media Inc., publisher of Entrepreneur magazine.

The Princeton Review chooses schools based on a range of institutional data that it evaluates.

Top entrepreneurship program lists are available at princetonreview.com/

Entrepreneur magazine also has posted a feature on the ranking lists at entrepreneur.com/

topcolleges. The magazine’s article will appear in its October issue, available Tuesday on newsstands.
