WELLESLEY, Mass., Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur released their lists of the Top 25 Graduate and Undergraduate Programs for Entrepreneurs.

One hundred percent of Babson students take action toward starting a business.

The F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business at Babson College this year earned the No. 1 spot nationwide, above such well-known institutions as University of Chicago, Rice University, Northwestern University, and Columbia University.

Babson's undergraduate program is also among the top three in the country.

From Babson's signature business pitch events and accelerator programs, to innovative resources and spaces like its centers and institutes and the Weissman Foundry, Babson is a living and learning laboratory where students pursue, and take immediate action on, their many pursuits.

"No matter what our graduates leave here to do, or where they go to work, they will encounter challenges, opportunities, and new ideas," shared Candida Brush, vice provost of Global Entrepreneurial Learning at Babson College. "Our students learn through required entrepreneurial practice to seek out opportunity, apply what they know, experiment, iterate, and learn. This is what helps us collectively make progress in this wildly changing world, and it's a mindset that applies in any context, including at family firms, corporations, nonprofits, and startups."

One hundred percent of Babson's entrepreneurship faculty-making up the largest dedicated entrepreneurship department in the world-have started, bought, or run a business. As such, they contribute to this notion of Babson's having its own entrepreneurial DNA.

Whether participating in one or many of Babson's co-curricular activities, or fostering a lifelong, meaningful connection with a faculty member and entrepreneur, Babson's graduates leave uniquely prepared to lead in a new way, and tackle some of the world's biggest challenges.

One hundred percent of Babson students take action toward starting a business, and 2,000 ventures have been launched by graduate and undergraduate students during the last 10 years.

Together they have raised more than $2.1 billion in funding (includes investment funds).

Coming into its second century, Babson is on a mission to put the power of entrepreneurship in the most hands, and places, as possible.

Looking past the accolades and potential personal ROI, the College is most proud of its global network of 41,000+ alumni and students working to create economic and social value simultaneously.

Spanning 119 countries, and rooted in Babson's entrepreneurial way of thinking and acting, this network puts what they have learned to practice-transforming lives, businesses, and communities for the better.
