Simon Business School entrepreneurship ranks high

The University of Rochester’s Simon Business School is one of the nation’s top schools for entrepreneurship studies, according to the Princeton Review, which this week posted its lists of the country’s top business schools. Simon placed no. 21 among graduate schools, up two places from last year.

“The Ain Center for Entrepreneurship is pleased with our increase in graduate ratings,” said Duncan Moore, University Vice Provost for Entrepreneurship, Rudolf and Hilda Kingslake Professor of Optical Engineering, and area coordinator for entrepreneurship at Simon Business School. “Being ranked 21st out of approximately 200 universities is a tribute to the work in all of our colleges and schools.”

The Simon School partners with the Ain Center for Entrepreneurship to provide the University and greater Rochester communities with resources to generate and transform ideas into enterprises that create value, both economic and social.

Launched in 2006, the center was renamed two years ago in recognition of Mark S. Ain ’67S (MBA) and his wife, Carolyn Ain, for their visionary leadership and support of entrepreneurial students University-wide. The Ain Center identifies and creates new partnerships with students, alumni, local businesses, and nonprofit organizations; coordinates and publicizes school-based experiences, including courses and signature programming; informs faculty of grant and fellowship opportunities; and encourages collaboration among the schools engaged in entrepreneurship education at the University of Rochester.

University and Simon Business school teams will compete Saturday, November 18, for a place in the 2018 Hult Prize competition, the largest social entrepreneurship competition in the world. Click here to learn more.
