Tufts Ranks in Forbes' Top 50 Entrepreneurial Schools

VentureFizz highlights the entrepreneurial spirit of bay state universities, with eight schools making Forbes' list of the Top 50 Most Entrepreneurial Universities, including Tufts!

Ranked at #40, here's what they had to say:

Tufts’ Entrepreneurial Leadership Studies program (ELS) offers an innovative curriculum and programming that aims to deepen students’ knowledge of core business concepts and provides a wealth of hands-on experiences to put this knowledge into practice in the real world. The program is highly customizable and open to students from all schools and majors, allowing students to select individual classes as electives or work with an ELS advisor to structure a minor tailored to a student’s specific goals. Tufts encourages students to bring what they learn in the classroom into the startup world, providing early-stage startups with mentorship, funding, and support services. Early stage businesses can compete in The Tufts Idea Competition, awarding winners $1,000, mentorship, and invitations to startup-related workshops. Ventures can also apply for the $100k New Ventures Competition, one of the top entrepreneurship competitions in the US.

Forbes ranked the country’s most entrepreneurial schools based on the numbers of alumni and students who have identified themselves as founders and business owners on LinkedIn (adjusted to total student body size).
