Belmont’s undergraduate entrepreneurship program ranks #26

It is the only Volunteer State program placing in the top 50 in the latest rankings from The Princeton Review.

Belmont University’s undergraduate entrepreneurship program was the only one from the State of Tennessee that was ranked in the top 50 in The Princeton Review‘s 18th annual ranking of schools for entrepreneurship studies. It placed #26.

The rankings name the 50 undergraduate and 50 graduate institutions with the best offerings in entrepreneurship studies for 2024. It is based on a survey The Princeton Review conducted in summer 2023 of administrators at nearly 300 schools. The ranking considers more than 40 data points about the schools’ entrepreneurship programs, faculties, students, and alumni.

The University of Houston is #1 on the undergraduate list, while Rice University is #1 on the graduate list. Both schools also hold a unique distinction among institutions ranked by The Princeton Review: they are five-peats, having earned the #1 spots on these lists for five consecutive years.

Both universities are located in Texas which made an impressive showing on the undergraduate list. The University of Texas at Austin placed #2 on the undergraduate list and #6 on the graduate program rankings. Other Lone Star State schools ranking in the top 50 undergraduate programs were Texas Christian University (#27), University of Texas at Dallas (#28), Baylor University (#42), and Texas Tech University (#43).

Florida earned top honors in the South with the University of Tampa placing highest in the undergraduate category (#15), while the University of South Florida was the highest ranked graduate program at #9. And the Sunshine State placed six universities in the top 10 for undergraduate programs and five in the top 10 for graduate programs.
