The education of an entrepreneur may begin in the classroom, but it's often the educational environment that determines how well-rounded a program truly is--and what it can help entrepreneurial-minded students achieve.

That's why The Princeton Review's annual ranking of undergraduate and graduate programs in entrepreneurship surveys the entire landscape of entrepreneurship programs--from externships and faculty credentials to business plan competitions, affiliated organizations and other critical components. The result is a comprehensive ranking of the top 25 undergraduate and 25 graduate programs, determined by survey data from more than 2,000 institutions. The ranking is based on the following questions and methodology:

Academics and requirements: Schools were asked if they offer an entrepreneurship major or minor and to specify the courses offered, such as e-business, social entrepreneurship or international entrepreneurship. Other academic requirements--internships, experiential learning and consulting for small-business owners, for example--also affect a school's ranking.
