The Princeton Review has named the Wright State University Raj Soin College of Business as one of the nation’s top colleges for aspiring entrepreneurs.
The College of Business was ranked No. 46 among schools for graduate entrepreneurship studies in 2021.
It was based on a survey of more than 300 institutions offering such programs and measured academics, enrollment, mentorship, competitions, scholarships and the number of companies started by graduates.
Wright State’s ranking was based on its Master of Business Administration’s New Venture Creation concentration.
“Our New Venture Creation M.B.A. concentration prepares students to build a successful new business from the ground up,” said Thomas Traynor, dean of the Raj Soin College of Business. “Our graduates know how to capitalize on new ideas and build a complete business plan for a successful launch, guided by professors with experience in cultivating new businesses. This the same approach that we have used in the development of our new Bachelor of Science in Business Entrepreneurship major and Entrepreneurship minor.”
The New Venture Creation M.B.A. concentration features advanced topics in innovation and entrepreneurship to help increase skills and further career goals. It focuses on the economics of innovation, including the technological change, economic growth, globalization and long-wave cycles that affect innovation in business and organization. It also offers also courses on technology-based ventures and entrepreneurship.
