The Sawyer Business School undergraduate program in entrepreneurship was included among the top 25 schools in the sixth annual ranking of the top graduate and undergraduate entrepreneurship programs in the United States.

The Sawyer Business Schools undergraduate entrepreneurship program being an Entrepreneur Top 25 school is truly an honor and validation of the efforts of our students and faculty, as well as the Universitys commitment to the entrepreneurial phenomenon, said George G. Moker, director of Entrepreneurship Programs. Our Entrepreneurship 2.0 program was launched in 2004 and has evolved into a coordinated curriculum that puts our students in the best position to launch a venture, while experiencing the challenges and opportunities of other startup organizations. Over the past four years, we have seen dramatic growth in our program that is complimented by a strong balance of entrepreneurial academic and professional faculty.

The 2008 rankings were based on evaluations of key criteria in the areas of academics and requirements, students and faculty, and outside-the-classroom experiences.

Amy Cosper, vice president/editor-in-chief at Entrepreneur, said Each school that made the list demonstrates excellence in one or more areas -- whether in regards to course offerings, the success of students post-graduation, sponsored mentorship programs, or other important factors. Schools that made the ranking are an excellent research starting point for prospective entrepreneurship students.
