Home for startups: Virginia Tech ranked among nation’s top schools for entrepreneurship studies
Virginia Tech has been ranked No. 25 for undergraduate entrepreneurship programs in Princeton Review’s rankings for 2021, released Nov. 17.
This is the first year Virginia Tech has received a national ranking for entrepreneurship programs, said Derick Maggard, executive director of the Apex Center for Entrepreneurs, the university’s center for entrepreneurship programs. “But it confirms what students at Virginia Tech already know: this is home for startups.”
Maggard said interest in entrepreneurship has grown significantly in recent years among students at all academic colleges and institutes on campus, many of whom see entrepreneurship as a means to create positive change.
