We’re not surprised to hear the news that this Michigan University program is ranked high for entrepreneurship.

According to Entrepreneur Magazine and The Princeton Review, the Zell Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies at the University of Michigan is ranked the Number 4 Graduate Program in Entrepreneurship. This is the sixth year running it’s been ranked a top five program for entrepreneurship. Also, worth noting, is the undergraduate entrepreneurship program was ranked number 7.

The school has recently expanded it’s offerings to sharpen the minds of students interest in entrepreneurship.

“As interest in entrepreneurship grows at a rapid pace, we at Michigan Ross are here to help students learn and determine if entrepreneurship is the right choice for them,” said Alison Davis-Blake, dean of the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. “Our focus on action-based learning, and the opportunity to manage real funds, develop real projects and interact with mentors who are successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists themselves is what sets Ross apart.”

On campus are two startup incubators, TechArb and the new Bharat Desai Family Accelerator, both working with the Zell Lurei Institute.  In July 2015, the Zell Lurie Institute received a pledge of $60 million from the Zell Family Foundation, which provides additional endowed support for the continued delivery and development of entrepreneurship programs for students and alumni.
