Babson College in Wellesley, Mass. is the school for entrepreneurs.
According to a survey of 2,000 undergraduate and graduate business schools done by The Princeton Review in conjunction with Entrepreneur Media Inc., Babson has the best undergraduate entrepreneurship program in the country. The University of Michigan at Ann Arbor topped the list of graduate schools, while Babson's graduate program came in number two.
The University of Houston and the University of Southern California came in second and third, respectively, on the undergrad list, and Harvard number three for grad schools.
It was Harvard's first time making the ranking.
Other first-time apperances included Stanford University at number six, George Washington University at number 25 and New York University at 24 for graduate programs.
"We salute these colleges and b-schools not only for their superb faculties and wide range of courses of entrepreneurship, but also for their school-sponsored out-of-class offerings," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior VP and publisher, in a press release.
The Princeton Review conducted the survey from April through June 2013, asking each school 60 questions about its academics, requirements, students, faculty and opportunities outside the classroom.
They asked if schools offered an entrepreneurship program, the number and type of classes it comprised and percentage of the student body enrolled in the program. They also inquired about entrepreneurial clubs, organizations, scholarships and mentorships.
The Princeton Review has been compiling this list annually since 2006.
