University of South Florida rejoins top 25 graduate programs in entrepreneurship

The Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of South Florida has reclaimed a top 25 ranking for its graduate program, the school announced Tuesday.

The program, ranked ninth in 2007 and fifth in 2008 by the Princeton Review, grabbed the 25th spot on the 2010 list featured in Entrepreneur magazine's October issue.

Gov. Charlie Crist and university president Judy Genshaft listened to students' stories at a roundtable Tuesday as part of the announcement.

"Everything's about jobs and the economy, and what's happening here at the University of South Florida is in my opinion, extraordinary," Crist said. "They're reaching out into different fields, trying to create more jobs, a better economy — moving forward."

No other Florida school made the ranking, which weighs specialty courses, enrollment, percent of faculty who are entrepreneurs, experiences offered outside the classroom and scholarships. The top three programs were Babson College in Massachusetts, the University of Chicago and the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
