Temple’s entrepreneurship program ranked in top 30

In its April 2005 issue, Entrepreneur magazine ranked The Fox School of Business and Management as one of the top 30 entrepreneurship programs in the nation.

Entrepreneur magazine introduced the rankings saying, “The schools in our third annual top 100 colleges and universities give their students a competitive advantage in the real world.”

Temple’s entrepreneurship program was ranked in the comprehensive category, which is for schools that offer the widest variety of resources.

“We’re proud that Entrepreneur magazine has ranked Fox’s entrepreneurship program in the same tier as Harvard, Dartmouth, Northwestern, Cornell and University of Michigan at Ann Arbor,” said M. Moshe Porat, dean of The Fox School. “Entrepreneurship and innovation are key Fox tenets and strengths.”

The Fox School’s tier position in the comprehensive programs category placed it ahead of University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and every other school in the region.

“The Fox School’s advance from top 50 to top 30 in 2005 highlights the richness of Temple’s applied entrepreneurship program at The Fox School’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute and also underlines the IEI’s intense involvement with all 17 schools and colleges at Temple University,” said Chris Pavlides, director of the IEI.
