SUMMARY

Studying Entrepreneurship is not only a valuable choice, but generally a required first step for students hoping to pursue a career as a founder, a venture capitalist, or a board member. Interestingly, nationally, entrepreneurship is somewhat popular coming in at the 104th most popular major. Last year alone, there were 3,336 entrepreneurship degrees conferred. In-state tuition for entrepreneurship at private colleges is, on average, 3.5 times more spendy than their public fellows.

There are 246 universities that offer entrepreneurship. This number of schools is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other entrepreneurship undergraduates, look at schools in Texas which have more students admitted to entrepreneurship than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to study entrepreneurship is in the Southwest region with Baylor University, University of North Texas, and Texas Christian University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the top conference to major in entrepreneurship is the Big Twelve Conference with Oklahoma State University-Main Campus, Baylor University, and Texas Christian University representing the conference. That said, our belief is that the best university for entrepreneurship is Brown University, and here you can find our comprehensive list for the best colleges.

The objectively best school might not actually be the 'best' school for you. There are lots of perspectives to weigh when selecting school. Features like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely modify your thoughts of which university to attend. At authority.org, we have evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which entrepreneurship school has the top college campus, the answer is Syracuse University. If, for example, you are primarily interested in which university boasts the best campus, then we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our well researched list for the schools with the best student life&nbspand our choice of the university with the best student life for entrepreneurship is Washington University in St Louis. Are you curious why? Keep scrolling to discover more about our top choices. Some of our picks just might shock you.

If expense is a significant factor in your decision on where to go to school, you might be cautious about Brown University. Brown University&nbspis our most expensive university for entrepreneurship, at least for out of state attendance. That being said, we have an entire list of the most expensive&nbspuniversities that could put the price tag at Brown University&nbspinto perspective. Additionally, you could be interested to know that entrepreneurship is the 93rd most expensive degree in America, with an average bill of $40,100. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for entrepreneurship nationally is District of Columbia demonstrated by a cost of $54,453 at the main college in the state George Washington University. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the country for entrepreneurship is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Boston College with a cost of $56,780, Brown University with a cost of $57,112, and Bryant University with a cost of $44,498.

Our cheapest region for entrepreneurship is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Metropolitan State University of Denver with a cost of $20,009, Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, and Utah Valley University with a cost of $15,872. In better news, the most affordable university for entrepreneurship is Brigham Young University-Provo. Authority.org's full list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state attendees can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $10,000 for a degree in entrepreneurship. The price increases substantially to an average of $21,500 for an out-of-state public-school student. On that note, our pick for the college representing the best value for entrepreneurship: Washington University in St Louis. On this page you will see our comprehensive list about the universities we see as being the best value&nbspin general. Do know, this idea is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for entrepreneurship majors can cover a wide range, but two years after graduation students will regularly earn around $56,200. While there can be a lot of variation in earnings; top earners can rake in up to $116,000. Right out of school, the lowest earning jobs within the entrepreneurship field make $26,900, which isn't that bad. The highest earning grads from entrepreneurship have come from Boston College&nbspand if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The prevailing diversity of entrepreneurship ranks solid, ranking within the 61st percentile of majors nationally. The college with the highest composite diversity for entrepreneurship is Brown University&nbspand here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities with the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Entrepreneurship major stands only in the 59th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even less in the 55th percentile. White collegians make up the largest proportion at 60% of scholars studying entrepreneurship. Additionally, 63% of undergrads seeking an entrepreneurship major are men.

The median rating for entrepreneurship's professors is 4.1 stars, a rating that is 2% better than the average score across all majors; this is a good ranking. If you are looking for the most popular entrepreneurship instructor nationally, take a look at Carlos Ortega from University of Houston. This may come as a surprise, but the highest rated professors of entrepreneurship by student come from University of Houston. As we consider data beyond just rankings it becomes clear that the university possessing comprehensively the best professors for entrepreneurship is Brown University. You will find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with some of the best professors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest university to get into for entrepreneurship is Brown University. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we have a comprehensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we hope you understand that considering college from examples mainly informed by superlatives might create problems. We hope you look at some of our more nuanced pages on different topics and peruse a couple of Authority's helpful background pages on important details to look for as you continue your school search.
