Aspiring entrepreneurs in Maryland have two great options for higher education, according to ranking website College Choice.
The University of Maryland, College Park snagged the No. 20 spot on website’s list of the 50 best U.S. colleges for entrepreneurs, while Johns Hopkins University came in a bit lower, at No. 36.
Stanford University took the top spot, followed by the University of California, Berkeley in second place and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in third.
UMPC got kudos for the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship in the Robert H. Smith School of Business. Dingman offers business plan competitions, help for startup companies and other extracurricular programs.
College Choice also appreciated the fact that business majors at UMCP can choose the entrepreneurship track.
At Hopkins, all students can pursue a minor in “entrepreneurship and management” through the Center for Leadership Education in addition to their primary field of study. By doing so, they can explore the potential business opportunities that exist in non-business fields, such as public health or engineering.
