Simon MBA No. 9 in the US for Entrepreneurship

We are excited to share some news with you: Simon Business School has been ranked No. 9 in the US and No. 19 in the world in a ranking of the top 50 MBA programs for entrepreneurship by Financial Times.

TopMBAforEntrepreneurship_FT2018This specialty ranking is derived from the core data Financial Times collects during their annual global MBA ranking and uses a weighted average of entrepreneurship criteria based on alumni survey responses. Within the Entrepreneurship category, Simon performed well in Equity (% of entrepreneurs who raised at least a third of equity via private investors) and Still Operating (companies that were still operating at the end of 2016). We also received high marks in all of the alumni network categories as well as the extent to which the School helped to both start and staff the business. This ranking is a testament to the School’s longstanding entrepreneurial focus and our strong partnership with the Ain Center for Entrepreneurship.

We are so proud of our graduates and their success in start-ups and innovative small businesses. (In fact, one of our 2016 MBA graduates was recently featured in The New York Times for his entrepreneurial venture: Mo Shaikh co-founded the tech start-up Meridio—a Brooklyn company focused on introducing blockchain technology to real estate.) We seek to continue our momentum in this field and can’t wait to see the future accomplishments of our Simon MBAs.

It bears testimony to the leadership provided by our faculty in this field for almost 50 years.
