UMD Recognized for Top Entrepreneurship Programs
The University of Maryland has once again made The Princeton Review's list of the country's top entrepreneurship programs. In the 2014 list of the "Top 50 Schools For Entrepreneurship Programs," published in Entrepreneur magazine, UMD ranks No. 15 for its undergraduate program. The university also ranks No. 16 for its graduate program, up eight spots from the 2013 rankings.
Entrepreneurship education initiatives offered by the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech), a unit of the A. James Clark School of Engineering, played a key role in the new ratings. Mtech's programs featured 18 entrepreneurship courses with 1,003 enrolls in academic year 2011-2012, along with two living-learning programs, one community college transfer program, seed funding and mentoring. Mtech's overall programs add to these offerings with a business model challenge, product development funding, free intellectual property services, entrepreneur office hours, a venture accelerator, prototype lab, incubator, and additional support for companies throughout their lifecycles.
