The Princeton Review® and Entrepreneur magazine today announced the results of The Princeton Review’s 14th annual survey naming the top undergraduate and graduate schools for entrepreneurship studies. Based on data the education services company collected from more than 300 schools with offerings in entrepreneurship studies, The Princeton Review’s ranking lists for 2020 name 50 undergraduate and 25 graduate schools as outstanding choices for students aspiring to become entrepreneurs.
Iowa State University is included with the undergraduate program ranked at #26.
“Iowa State University is excited to be building a vibrant ecosystem where innovation and entrepreneurship are integrated into the curriculum. With the opening of the Student Innovation Center in 2020, Iowa State will have a state-of-the-art, hands-on hub for students of all programs and majors to collaborate, design, create, and bring their ideas to life,” said Iowa State University President Wendy Wintersteen.
Entrepreneurship has been a theme at Iowa State for more than 20 years thanks to the many successes at the Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship. Excitement has been accelerating in recent years.
“The Ivy College of Business launched an undergraduate major in entrepreneurship in the fall 2017, so to say Iowa State has a nationally ranked program in two years is impressive,” said Raisbeck Endowed Dean David Spalding. “This is a testament to the dedication and talent of our faculty and staff, who continue to offer high quality academic programs for our students.”
The university has also offered a minor in entrepreneurship for many years, which is open to all Iowa State students.

“Here at the college, we could not be more excited about this news,” Spalding said. “When you look at the many new programs we have launched to meet the needs of our students and their future employers, and also at our improved rankings over the past six years, you will understand why we are known as a college on the move.”
