Boston University is considered one of the top start-up schools in the U.S., according to Forbes. The business magazine ranked BU 28th on its 2014 most entrepreneurial universities list.

Forbes based its ranking of the nation’s most entrepreneurial research universities on an “entrepreneurial ratio,” pitting the number of alumni and students who have identified themselves as founders and business owners on LinkedIn against the school’s total student body (undergraduate and graduate combined).

Boston University School of Management is leading the charge at the University for more innovative academics, offering a newly enhanced curriculum that fosters and cultivates entrepreneurship. The School’s Entrepreneurship Programs Office also hosts various entrepreneurial events, including new venture case competitions, business start-up boot camps, and a Pitch & Pizza competition, during which participants have 60 seconds to pitch a business idea to a panel of experts.
