Rutgers MBA program climbs to No. 10 in world for entrepreneurship in Poets & Quants ranking

The Rutgers MBA is the No. 10 program in the world for students who want to pursue studies in entrepreneurship, according to a new ranking by Poets & Quants.

The ranking highlights the strength of a university-wide ecosystem enriched by interdisciplinary collaboration and Rutgers Business School faculty members who bring their own entrepreneurial experience into the classroom.

Poets & Quants considered programs at 38 schools and used 16 different data points to measure various parts of the entrepreneurial experience, including the average percentage of students launching businesses during their MBA program as well as the amount of accelerator space and startup award money available to MBAs.

The ranking puts Rutgers Business School in the company of such schools as Olin Business School (No. 1), Harvard Business School (No. 6), Ross School of Business (No. 7) and Stanford University Graduate School of Business (No.8).

“We are extremely proud to be ranked by Poets & Quants as one of the Top 10 MBA programs in the world for entrepreneurship,” said Lei Lei, the dean of Rutgers Business School. “Our faculty collaborate across Rutgers to create an ecosystem that fosters entrepreneurial thought and allows the ambitions of our student entrepreneurs to flourish.”

The ranking also recognizes the value of having excellent facilities, including business incubator space. Rutgers MBA students have access to Newark Venture Partners, which is housed within Rutgers Business School-Newark.
