Texas Christian University's undergraduate program in entrepreneurship at the Neeley School of Business is ranked No. 6 in the country, up from No. 9 last year, by Bloomberg Businessweek. TCU said the magazine surveyed more than 85,000 students at 145 top business schools and asked them to rate their program’s performance in entrepreneurship. The top program was at Worchester Polytechnic Institute. Baylor's Hankamer School of Business was No. 3 and the top Texas program for entrepreneurship.
“We have built an innovative program with our entrepreneurial management major and the rich diversity of programs offered through the Neeley Entrepreneurship Center,” O. Homer Erekson, dean of the Neeley School, said in a prepared release.
TCU was ranked No. 28 overall among undergraduate business programs overall, its same rank a year ago, according to the magazine's website. The University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business was the top Texas undergraduate program at No. 9. Notre Dame was No. 1, followed by the University of Virginia and Cornell University. Other Texas undergrad business programs included: Southern Methodist University, No. 30; Texas A&M University, No. 33; Baylor, No. 66; and the University of Texas at Dallas, No. 75.
