Loyola Marymount University continues to offer one of the best programs for aspiring entrepreneurs, according to The Princeton Review. LMU placed #14 on its list of the “Top 25 Undergraduate Schools for Entrepreneurship Studies for 2016.” More than 300 schools with entrepreneurship offerings were in consideration.
Since its inception in 1972, LMU’s Entrepreneurship program has been teaching its students the art of business management and creation with an eye towards ethics and social responsibility. In fact, LMU was one of the first schools in the U.S. to offer such a program.
“I am thrilled for our faculty, staff, students, and alumni,” said David Choi, Director of LMU’s Fred Kiesner Center for Entrepreneurship. “We are being recognized because our students and graduates have been successful in their entrepreneurial endeavors.”
LMU’s Vice Provost for Enrollment Management, Maureen Weatherall, echoes Choi’s sentiment, adding:
“I am proud to say that the same spirit that exists in our entrepreneurial program is evident in all our nationally-ranked academic programs and can only lead to more promising outcomes.”
One of the program’s greatest innovative assets is its world famous “Business Incubator,” which provides students the workplace, guidance and small funds to pursue and build entrepreneurial ventures that could have an impact in the real world.
Additionally, LMU is uniquely positioned directly above the burgeoning tech and start-up mecca of Silicon Beach, which is currently offering up an abundance of internship and job opportunities to students.
No stranger to The Princeton Review, LMU consistently ranks on many of their “top” lists, including “Students Most Engaged in Community Service” (#7), “Most Beautiful Campus” (#11), and “Happiest Students” (#17).
