The Princeton Review has named Wright State University’s Raj Soin College of Business as one of the nation’s top graduate programs for aspiring entrepreneurs, ranking it 39th overall and eighth in the Midwest in 2023.
The ranking is based on a survey of administrators at nearly 300 schools offering entrepreneurship studies. The survey, which contained more than 60 questions, was analyzed using over 40 survey data points to select the schools and tally their rankings.
Wright State’s ranking was based on its Master of Business Administration and its New Venture Creation concentration.
“Our New Venture Creation MBA concentration prepares students to build a successful new business from the ground up,” said Thomas Traynor, Ph.D., dean of the Raj Soin College of Business. “Our graduates know how to capitalize on new ideas and build a complete business plan for a successful launch, guided by professors with experience in cultivating new businesses. This is the same approach that we have used in the development of our new Bachelor of Science in Business Entrepreneurship major and entrepreneurship minor.”
The New Venture Creation MBA concentration features advanced topics in innovation and entrepreneurship to help increase skills and further career goals. It focuses on the economics of innovation, including the technological change, economic growth, globalization and long-wave cycles that affect innovation in business and organizations. It also offers also courses on technology-based ventures and entrepreneurship.
